Richard Schaefer offers a fresh view on race and ethnicity in his book, Racial and Ethnic Groups, Census Update where he discusses the topics of racial and ethnic relations in a socio-historical perspective. One of the best references in this niche, this textbook features compelling stories, anecdotes, and personal accounts that allow students to analyze issues surrounding the ever changing dynamics of the country's population. Accounts and discussions also include real-world cases. The book encourages discussions of the different concerns affecting the future of racial and ethnic relations, including immigration changes, the ever increasing societal and population diversity, as well as the election of America's first ever African-American president. Richard Schaefer also included data from the American Community Survey as well as the 2009 Annual and Social Economical Supplements to the book's census update. Racial and Ethnic Groups, Census Update (12th Edition) ISBN 9780205800513 also highlights Obama's first year in office, as well as some recent case studies like Ricci v. DeStefano's ‘Reverse Discrimination' (2009), and the arrest of Henry Louis Gates Jr. Other notable additions to the edition include the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and a brand new citizenship test. The author has long been fascinated by the transition of society's racial and ethnic composition. He has a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D in sociology, and has established a 30-year teaching career, lecturing on racial and ethnic diversity, sociology, and multiculturalism. Among his best-sellers are Race and Ethnicity in the United States and the Encyclopedia of Race, Ethnicity, and Society.
