About this item

Encompassing the experiences of African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and other people of color, this four-volume reference is designed for students and general readers in high school and up. With a writing level that is accessible yet still challenging, the set can be used as a reference for courses in history, sociology, psychology, geography, economics, immigration, and American society. Each thematic volume contains alphabetical entries on social and economic issues of people of color, plus debate essays on controversial topics. Entries include cross references and sidebars, and each volume concludes with a list of recommended web sites, books, and articles. Each volume also includes a listing of entries grouped in numerous categories. Volume 1 covers K-12 and higher education, offering 47 entries on topics ranging from adult education to TRIO programs, plus pro/con essays on 6 issues such as charter schools and busing. Volume 2 looks at employment, housing, family, and community. Entries deal with subjects from affordable housing to welfare reform, while pro/con debates offer perspectives on hot-button issues such as Native America casinos and the wealth gap. Volume 3 addresses health and wellness, with material on areas from addiction through violence, plus debates on four issues, including childhood obesity and childhood trauma. Volume 4 deals with immigration and migration. Entries look at a range of issues from anti-immigration policies to undocumented students.
