Product description

Publication date: 1990. Condition: Very good. The cover is in very good condition, with just a little wear and a light crease across the upper corner. Internally the book is in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked. Content: "This book is a study of the relationship between ethnicity and socioeconomic status. It is the first to empirically study both the white and nonwhite underclass. Jiobu uses United States census data on twenty ethnic groups including specific white groups and specific nonwhite groups. Using the 1980 national census, which contains information on ancestry for the first time, Jiobu demonstrates that it is possible to define ethnic groups in new ways, such as drawing a distinction between race and ethnicity. "Ethnicity and Inequality" tests numerous theories and examines several important questions for ethnic relations: What is the demographic structure underlying the various groups? How can ethnicity, sex, and inequality be explained? Who gains from ethnic inequality? The author concludes by outlining a way to draw the diversity of findins under a single theoretical umbrella."
