Description - Race and Economic Opportunity in the Twenty-First Century by Marlene Kim

Examining the crucial topic of race relations, this book explores the economic and social environments that play a significant role in determining economic outcomes and why racial disparities persist. With contributions from a range of international contributors including Edward Wolff and Catherine Weinberger, the book compares how various racial groups fare and are affected in different ways by economic and social institution. Themes covered in the book include: * the economic status of various racial and ethnic groups, including their progress or retrenchment over the years * how the law, economic motivations, and increased competition for jobs affect racial disparities. This is an invaluable resource for researchers and academics across a number of disciplines including political economy, ethnic and multicultural studies, Asian studies, and sociology.
