About this book


Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, this book examines the intersection of race and ethnic relations and the life course. The essays in the volume thus reflect varieties of qualitative and quantitative methods in order to look at how these variables shape social organization and the experiences of those who live within the boundaries of society. The essays include works that use semi-structured interviews, ethnographies, and auto-ethnographies to inform the analysis of race, ethnicity and the life course.
