Overview

For courses in Race and Ethnic Relations

Examine the story of race and ethnic relations, past and present
Revel™ Strangers to These Shores: Race and Ethnic Relations in the United States
helps students understand how racial and ethnic groups came to be, how they are changing, and how they will continue to change in the future. As in previous editions, author Vincent Parrillo begins each chapter with a sociohistorical perspective on a specific segment of the U.S. population and closes with a sociological analysis of the group’s experiences using the functionalist, conflict, and interactionist perspectives. The 12th Edition includes extensively updated data as well as coverage of contemporary developments, such as the Muslim travel ban and sexual harassment in the news, that will help today’s students see the relevance of course material.
