Editorial Reviews

Review


"If Black Ethnics had focused on only one of its two subjects - the racial and ethnic identities of foreign-born blacks in the United States, or the racial and political activities of an important public sector labor union - it would have been valuable and illuminating. Its gift to readers is attention to both of these subjects as well as the relationships connecting them. That makes it a stunning and original piece of research. We learn a great deal from Greer's empathetic and insightful study."-Jennifer Hochschild, Harvard University


"Christina Greer's ambitious and persuasive book simultaneously engages scholarship in race and ethnicity, immigration, and public opinion; analyzes new data on black attitudes; and introduces a novel theory of black ethnic relations. Plus, it's a treat to read. An important and original contribution, Black Ethnics will be invaluable to scholars of Black studies, political science, sociology, and beyond."-Jane Junn, University of Southern California


"This important and perceptive book is a major contribution to our understanding of the politics of black ethnic diversity. Greer skillfully mines data from a rare New York City survey as well as national polls to generate a series of nuanced political profiles of African Americans, Afro-Caribbean immigrants, and African immigrants. While revealing what is politically distinctive about each of these groups, she also identifies areas of political convergence and conflict among them. The result is an empirically rich and theoretically insightful account of the complexities of contemporary black politics and the challenges all blacks continue face in their pursuit of the American Dream."-Reuel Rogers, Northwestern University

"Intellectually and culturally compelling" is how I'd describe what I've read so far - and I cannot wait to read the rest of this groundbreaking, thought provoking look at topics about which I find most of the literature all too stultifying.

Christina Greer has such a fabulous insight into race and ethnicity. She has opened my eyes and changed my perspective and assumptions about skin color and country of origin, as well as community and culture. I think this will really transform how people look at various cultures. There is so much more depth than what we first assume and assess about people and their origin.

Christina Greer's book is great! I would say that you should read it more for the theory than the data. The data that she uses to support some of her hypotheses is just not that great and occasionally not statistically significant. I didn't mind much because it was still a good introduction to the subject and was very readable.

I strongly recommend the book to those who are interested in the subject. The author who is a prolific writer walks us through an in depth perspective of pertinent issues with an upbeat, positive and constructive tone.
