In , he became a grandfather, and now has two grandchildren. It is not a study of any one racial or ethnic group, although a wide variety of information is provided about a number of groups.
Rather, it is intended to enhance the reader's understanding of why such groups interact as they do. The primary emphasis is on the relationships between dominant majority and subordinate minority racial and ethnic groups in the United States. However, because a thorough understanding of the dynamics of intergroup relations cannot be obtained by looking at only one country, a full chapter is devoted to intergroup relations in other societies.
There is also discussion, particularly in Chapter 13, of minority groups other than racial and ethnic ones. The book is divided into four major parts. In Part I Chapters 2 and 3 the attitudes and beliefs of the individual concerning intergroup relations are explored through a variety of social-psychological approaches. The concept of prejudice is examined, as well as various theories about its causes, ways in which it may be combated, and the relationship between intergroup attitudes and intergroup behavior.
In Part II Chapters 4 through 8 the emphasis shifts to the larger societal arena. Two major sociological perspectives, order and conflict, are introduced here. These perspectives, and more specific kinds of theories arising from them; are used throughout the book to understand intergroup relations in society. In the balance of Part II, the history of U. Also introduced here are the concepts of assimilation and pluralism and their roles in the history of American intergroup relations.
The theories are further refined through the examination of cross-cultural variations in intergroup relations in the closing chapter of Part II. This part begins with a compilation of data concerning the numbers, characteristics, and social statuses of a wide range of American racial and ethnic groups. The remainder of Part III is an extensive discussion of institutional discrimination, which has become at least as important as individual discrimination in the maintenance of racial and ethnic inequality in America.
That fact, however, was not reflected in many of the general works on intergroup relations available when I first wrote this book, and still often receives insufficient attention. This book attempts to remedy that deficiency through extensive discussion of processes that create or maintain such inequality in political, legal, economic, health-care, and educational institutions.
All of these areas, as well as housing discrimination and its causes and effects, are analyzed in Chapters The purpose of this coverage is not to deny the reality of individual discrimination; in fact the book addresses many ways in which this continues to occur, even today, at the beginning of a new century. Rather, the purpose is to help students understand the reality of institutional forms of discrimination, which are often more subtle and harder to see than individual acts of discrimination.
Part IV explores key issues, trends, and controversies in the present and future of intergroup relations. Chapter 13 addresses majority-minority relations based on gender, sexual orientation, and disability, with special attention to the ways in which racial and gender inequality interact and overlap, thus presenting special concerns and dilemmas for women and men of color.
Chapter 14 addresses current trends in majority-minority relations, including diversity and multiculturalism in work and education; the continuing problem of hate group activity and hate crime; debates about how to combat hatred, including issues centering around speech codes and "political correctness"; and the discrimination-testing movement.
Chapter 15 explores selected issues in the future of race and ethnic relations in the United States, including the continuing controversy over affirmative action; debates over the desirability of assimilation, pluralism, and separatism; the relative importance of race and class in American society; and the current and future immigration policy of the United States.

Bollinger and Gratz v. This discussion appears in Chapter 15, but other parts of the book have also been updated to reflect these cases.

Pride and Prejudice is an romantic novel of manners written by Jane Austen. The novel follows the character development of Elizabeth Bennet , the dynamic protagonist of the book who learns about the repercussions of hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the difference between superficial goodness and actual goodness. Its humour lies in its honest depiction of manners, education, marriage, and money during the Regency era in Great Britain. Bennet of Longbourn estate has five daughters, but his property is entailed and can only be passed to a male heir. His wife also lacks an inheritance, so his family will be destitute upon his death. Thus, it is imperative that at least one of the girls marry well to support the others, which is a motivation that drives the plot. The novel revolves around the importance of marrying for love rather than money or social prestige, despite the communal pressure to make a wealthy match.
