Explorations in Ethnic Studies
Although the past decade has witnessed a surge in the number of publications focusing on ethnic groups and ethnic issues, the genre of study which may be called “ethnic history of America”‘ is still weakly represented. As a relatively pioneering effort, the Dinnerstein, Nichols and Reimers book makes a valuable contribution, and it could be justifiably recommended for American history courses, American Society courses, and courses on ethnicity. The general periodization of history is good, and the important ethnic developments within each period are related effectively to the emergence and growth of the United States politically and economically as well as ideologically.
