September 2021 | 416 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

The authors are proud sponsors of the 2020 SAGE Keith Roberts Teaching Innovations Award—enabling graduate students and early career faculty to attend the annual ASA pre-conference teaching and learning workshop.

Race and Ethnic Relations: Sociology in Action is an innovative survey text for undergraduate Race/Ethnicity courses. Like the other "Sociology in Action" volumes, this book is built around thoughtful learning activities that encourage collaboration, application, self-directed learning, and learning by example. The chapters are written by contributing authors who are scholars in their assigned subjects, public sociologists, and instructors who practice active learning in their own classrooms. Along with a core set of chapters that examine one major racial/ethnic minority at a time, the text also investigates topics from the most current race scholarship, such as White ethnicity/White privilege, how racism hurts everyone in society, and how we can dismantle systemic racism.
