After the Fifth Sun: Class and Race in North America
This book offers a comparative exploration of the forms of social inequality in the United States, Mexico, and Canada, and demonstrates the separate logics and options in social thinking and policies that exist in each country. Shows how class and racial distinctions in North America first became an issue during Spanish and European colonization and then developed into patterns in all parts of North America. Shows that the patterns have had significant differences as well as similarities in the areas that became the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Comparatively describes the separate inequalities and accounts for how they developed. Considers the various inequalities from the outsider's view as well as through insiders' perspectives. For those interested in social stratification and racial and ethnic relations.
