This is the second edition of the textbook on race and ethnic relations, which has been adopted by academic and vocational courses and which is designed to be a straightforward introduction to this field of study. It retains all the original features, but reflects on events over the years since its original publication, incorporating accounts of developments in the UK and USA. Suggestions for further readings are revised in the light of the latest research.
