Perspectives on Race, Ethnicity, and Religion

Identity Politics in America

Edited by Valerie Martinez-Ebers and Manochehr Dorraj

Perspectives on Race, Ethnicity, and Religion is an introductory anthology that examines the history, current issues, and dynamics of minority groups in the United States. Featuring contributions from authors who are not only experts in their fields--which include political science, sociology, history, and religion--but who also belong to the minority groups about which they are writing, this collection provides students with the context to evaluate the roles that race, ethnicity, and religion play in the outcomes of American politics.
Perspectives on Race, Ethnicity, and Religion offers students a uniquely personal yet scientifically informed look at this significant subject. It also demonstrates how the structure and operation of our political system can obstruct the efforts of these groups to gain the full benefits of freedom and equal treatment promised under the American Constitution.
