Grade 7 Up–This collection of essays examines how race is experienced in this country by considering the following questions: Should America's Racial Differences Be Emphasized?, What Impact Does Immigration Have on Interracial America?, What Policies Promote Opportunities for All Races?, and How Should Society View Interracial Families? The viewpoints expressed are excerpted from a variety of publications, and a periodical bibliography of related articles accompanies each chapter. Pieces from bell hooks, Clarence Thomas, the editors of Rethinking Schools
, the League of United Latin American Citizens, and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund are among the selections included. For social-studies classes wishing to delve into the matter of race, this volume should prove helpful when used in conjunction with other source materials. It will be a boon to debaters.–Carol Jones Collins, Columbia High School, Maplewood, NJ
