    A History of Misunderstanding: Race and Ethnicity in the United States

    Race and Ethnicity in the United States explores the complex history of cultural differences in a nation comprised of immigrants. By examining major themes of multiculturalism, discrimination, injustice, and diversity, the text explores the historical patterns of our country’s treatment of people of different faiths, colors, and cultures.
