Theories of Race and Ethnic Relations
John Rex, David Mason
Cambridge University Press, 1986 - Social Science - 350 pages
This book brings together internationally known scholars from a wide range of disciplines and theoritical traditions all of whom have made significant contributions to the field of race and ethic relations. As well as identifying important and persistent points of controversy, the collection reveals a complementary and multifaceted approach to theorisation. The theories represented include contributions from the perspective of sociology, social anthropology, sociobiology and social psychology. These range from the established perspectives of Marx and Weber through the more recent interventions of rational choice theory, symbolic interactionism and identity structure analysis.
