"Messer-Kruse's volume covers the last two decades of the twentieth century, when court cases, referendums, and protests against affirmative action, immigration, and bilingual education threatened to roll back the gains of earlier civil rights struggles. ...Each volume contains a series forward, a preface, and an introduction. The books are divided by decade with a time line for each decade, an overview essay, a summary of key events, excerpts from primary sources, and topical essays on race relations by group, law and government, media and mass communications, the cultural scene, and influential theories and views of race relations. Includes a resource guide and index." - MultiCultural Review "This volume helps the reader to understand the current state of race relations in America." - ARBACríticas:
