This engaging reader introduces students to the topics and themes that frame the study of race in the United States. Newly organized into seven major thematic parts, the book begins with basic concepts and then moves on to explore social structural and institutional analyses of race and ethnicity. Its 40 articles (21 of which are new) have been selected for their importance as well as for their accessibility to undergraduate readers. Part I examines how race is socially constructed. Part II explores how historical patterns of inclusion and exclusion have established the realities of racial and ethnic inequality today. Part III examines belief and ideology, including racial stereotypes, prejudice, forms of racism, and how they are influenced by popular culture. Part IV includes articles on racial identity and how race plays out in everyday life. Part V looks at the overlapping systems of race, class, and gender inequality. Part VI examines patterns of racial inequality in five major institutions: work, families and communities, housing and education, health care, and criminal justice. Part VII concludes the book by looking at large-scale contexts of change, ranging from individual to societal-level change.

The Souls of W. E. B. Du Boisexplores the relationship of W. E. B. Du Bois's seminal book, The Souls of Black Folk, to other works in his scholarly portfolio and to his larger project concerning race, racial identity, and the social objectives of scholarly engagement. The new, original chapters in this book, written by leading Du Bois scholars, offer a critical reading of Soulsand its relevance a century later in today's world. The chapters show how Soulsextends, refines, or introduces ideas developed in Du Bois's The Philadelphia NegroandBlack Reconstruction, and how Soulsrelates to Du Bois's early considerations of social activism on the behalf of African Americans and to his thinking about the situation of African American women. The book demonstrates how significant Soulsis for Du Bois's overarching objectives concerning racial theorizing, the social conditions affecting race, and the possibilities for social justice.
