This title was first published in 2001. A unique investigation of race and ethnic relations in today’s America, exploring the nature and extent of non-white socio-economic progress since 1990 and the degree of improvement in the overall racial and ethnic climate during the same period.


’The volume is to be recommended as an introduction as it addresses the central and current issues to date which make up the topic of ethnic and race relations in the US…In addition, Oswald’s study offers a wealth of statistics that could be perfectly useful as a supplement for ethnological investigation.’ Ethnoscripts
