schema:description"This three-volume reference addresses the wide range of issues that concern race and ethnicity alongside descriptive entries about racial, ethnic, and nationality groups worldwide. Entries are provided for selected countries, biographies, community and urban issues, concepts and theories, economics and stratification, and education, among other major themes. A sampling of individual topics include prisons, racial profiling, Black Power, repatriation of Mexican Americans, Black feminism, the National Council of La Raza, internalized racism, and Harlem Renaissance. Each entry concludes with cross references and a list of further reading. A series of appendices provide data on patterns of race and ethnicity in the US. Each volume contains an alphabetical list of entries and a readers guide listing the entries by theme. Volume 3 contains an exhaustive cumulative index. Written by an international group of contributors from various fields of study, the entries are accessible to high school and college level readers. Schaefer and his two co-editors are with the department of sociology at DePaul U. in Chicago. Annotation ♭2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)"@en
