Completely updated, this comprehensive work illuminates the many concepts, themes, and issues in race relations in America, both from a historical perspective and in today's modern society.

The three volumes of Racial & Ethnic Relations in America discuss the history of race relations in America, and provide new insight into racial relations and tensions seen in our cities, in the media, and on the minds of Americans today.

Over 900 entries present clear, detailed descriptions of ideas and theories, descriptions of people and events, and essential facts about court cases, laws and movements. This new edition features a full update of existing material, taking into consideration new terms and language regarding race. Hundreds of articles have been added to this edition, including: Black Lives Matter, Black LGBTQ, Violence in Black Communities, Black Education Achievement Gap, Black Mass Incarceration, Inner City Youth Employment Crisis, Victimology and Black Reparations, and White on Black Killings.

Four broad article types present detailed material in a clear, understandable language:

Theory Articles discuss how racial groups are formed, how they change over time, how they relate to one another, and how they affect their members.
History Articles provides readers with easy access to a wealth of articles on the historical background of race and ethnicity.
Current Events & Issues offers coverage of the hot topics of today's American societies in a format that enables readers to delve more deeply into many of the key issues affecting our ability to interrelate with peoples of different racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
Pioneers of Intergroup Relations provides sketches of individuals who have been especially influential in shaping relations among racial and ethnic groups.

Additional supplementary materials include a Timeline, Bibliography, Personages Index, and a Subject Index.

Designed for high school students, undergraduates, and public library patrons, this updated resource illuminates the many concepts, themes, and issues in race relations in America, both from a historical perspective and in today's modern society. This important work will be a useful addition to high school, university, community college, and public libraries, as well as for history and ethnic studies collections of all sizes.
