Ethnic and Racial Minorities in Advanced Industrial Democracies

Synopsis

This is a new comparative collection of essays on ethnic and racial minorities that shows there is a common ground shared by those in advanced industrial democracies that differentiates them from Third World and communist countries. The study offers a unique synthesis of diverse views by those who have studied long-established or ethnoregional minorities and those who have focused on recent immigrant populations. The analysis considers why ethnic and racial conflict and disadvantage endure. It points to ways that societies are organized economically and politically and linked into the international political economy.
