Sociology of Ethnicity by Sinisa Malesevic
Book Description"This book offers an original synthesis of existing knowledge, pointing forward in a manner that could influence a new generation's conception of the field and its agenda. If it attracts the attention it merits, it could prove one of the most important books about ethnic and racial relations since the nineteen-eighties." (Michael Banton, Ethnic and Racial Studies). "Malesevic provides a thorough and balanced account of the sociological foundations of the study of ethnicity...His presentation is as critical and engaging as it is easy to read and logically organized. It is invaluable reading for sociologists." (Jon Fox, British Journal of Sociology). Spanning classical sociology to current debates, The Sociology of Ethnicity synthesizes the leading sociological interpretations of ethnic relations and provides a coherent theoretical framework for its analysis. In this thoughtful and accessible text, Sinisa Malesevic assesses the explanatory strength of a range of sociological theories in understanding ethnicity and ethnic conflict. While acknowledging that there is no master key or blue-print to deal with each and every case of interethnic group relations, The Sociology of Ethnicity develops the best strategy to bridge epistemological and policy requirements for interethnic group relations. The Sociology of Ethnicity will be required reading for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates studying ethnicity and race in sociology and across the social sciences.
