Full Description


The growing number of Latinos and Asians in America has caused the creation of a new ethnic order. This text consists of essays that re-examine the role of affirmative action and civil rights in the light of this important shift in American demographics. The book explores issues of public policy, equal opportunity, diversity, multiculturalism, pathways to better work and higher learning, and attempts in countries outside the United States to protect minority civil rights.
