Issues in Race and Ethnicity
Selections from CQ Researcher

Eighth Edition


January 2018 | 328 pages | CQ Press

In the wake of a divisive presidential election charged with debates over immigration and identity politics, Americans continue to grapple with questions of race and ethnicity. This collection of nonpartisan and thoroughly researched reports focuses on provocative issues including gentrification, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the resurgence of white supremacy, anti-Semitism, and the "Alt-Right." Because it’s CQ Researcher, the policy reports are expertly researched and written, showing all sides of the debate. Chapters follow a set template, exploring three issue questions, then offering background, an overview of the current situation, and a look ahead. All issues include a chronology, bibliography, “yes/no” debate box, photos, charts, and figures.
