Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Ethnicity and Race in the U.S.A. is a timely collection of essays (earlier published as articles in Ethnic and Racial Studies). Much of the material will interest those involved in studying trends in multiculturalism in the United States. The author's background sections and conclusions are especially significant, backed by clear statistical data in many instances. The collection is well balanced. Alba directs our attention to the main events in ethnic developments since 1950, all of which contribute to a broad view of various "trajectories toward the new century" in matters of race and ethnicity. The spectrum of subjects is commendably wide.
