This book brings together internatiO nally known scholars from a range of disciplines and theoretical traditions. In setting out the various theories it demonstrates the range and diversity of approaches to race and ethnic relations current in the field. As well as identifyinf important and persistent points of controversy, however, the collection also reveals much complementarity and indicates the potential for a multi-faceted approach to theorization. The theories represented include contributions from the perspective of sociology, social anthropology, sociobiology, and social psychology.
