Review:


“The Farley text is different in that it begins from a much broader perspective of understanding race as a social, cultural, and historical variable.  Granted, it is necessary to break down any discussion of different racial and ethnic groups, but the Farley text does it in a way that keeps the broader picture and structure of race in context and plain view.”

Michael Stewart, Florida State University

 

“I find the text to be very accurate and solid in terms of addressing the material in a straightforward, scholarly way.”

Michael Stewart, Florida State University

 

“The scope of this text is impressive and I would be surprised if any instructor could not find at least a few examples of what he or she deems ‘necessary’.”

Dr. Cory Blad, Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville

 

“This text does a great job of building the foundation for consideration of majority-minority relations.  It then does a great job of elaborating into different issues that are relevant to a thorough understanding of majority-minority relations.”

Juanita Ortiz, University of Oklahoma

 

[Regarding boxed features] “They are interesting and engaging.  Improve them by adding more!”

Juanita Ortiz, University of Oklahoma

 

“This book is scholarly, thorough, and highly relevant to contemporary society.”

Dr. Judy Morelock, The University of Tennessee
