Race in America (First Edition)
Edited by Deidre Tyler

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-63487-244-7, 288 pages


Rather than focusing on differences, More like than Dislike: Race in America features readings that explore similarities among the races. Based on the premise that in a rapidly changing world people of all colors are facing the same challenges, the book places these challenges before the reader for examination and analysis.

The readings are organized into ten chapters, each addressing a specific issue. Some of these issues impact individuals with topics such as income stagnation, jobs and the economy, affordable housing, and food insufficiency. Others are societal in scope, including K-12 education, crime, the growing number of the elderly, and the effects of globalization.

Students will come to see that, while issues of race cannot be ignored, there are great benefits to be had in uniting to confront shared challenges. More like than Dislike: Race in America is an excellent reader for sociology courses, and classes on minority and ethnic issues.
