The papers which comprise this volume were produced by a group of these nationally known scholars who are engaged in research on comparative aspects of ethnicity and ethnic group behavior. Organized around a series of themes which run through the extant comparative ethnicity literature and which reflect the expertise and current research foci of the conference presenters, the volume is divided into five parts
Part I addresses issues related to "Ethnic Assimilation, Segregation, and Neighborhood Change."
Part II of the volume addresses issues related to labor markets and entrepreneurship.
Part III of this volume addresses issues related to ethnic political and electoral behavior.
Part IV of this volume focuses on racial/ethnic issues in higher education.
Part V of the book, which we've entitled "Comparative Ethnicity in Society," addresses a number of pertinent dilemmas which have received considerable attention in both the local and national news media.
