    Examining Intercultural Interactions: Research, Theory, and Analysis

    Understanding Race and Ethnic Relations examines the historically complex nature of intergroup communication. The text takes interpersonal relations into account within the larger context of society to understand cross-cultural interaction as a whole. Social science theory, research, and analysis are applied to scrutinize historical patterns that have shaped modern cultural relations.

     

    The Fifth Edition uses core sociological concepts to examine intergroup relations from a non-objective standpoint. Beginning with a general examination of culture, social class, and the notion of power, the text broadens to help students understand the root of discrimination and conflict by applying sociological theory. Widely celebrated throughout the globe, this text presents the very real issues of discrimination, conflict, and misunderstanding through a realistic, factual lens.
