summary
A comprehensive assessment of how race and ethnicity affect the places we live, work, and visit. “This timely volume is a storehouse of knowledge that brings together a wide selection of scholars in a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of race, ethnicity, and place. The primacy of place in ethnic and racial discourse is resurrected in this volume.” — Professor Joseph Oppong, University of North Texas “Race, Ethnicity, and Place in a Changing America provides one of the most rigorous and comprehensive assessments available on racial and ethnic geographies and explains why they are important to all of us.” — From the Foreword by Orlando Taylor (Howard University) and Douglas Richardson (Association of American Geographers
