Not Just Black and White: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives on Immigration, Race, and Ethnicity in the United States
(Russell Sage Foundation, 2004; 390 pp.) 

In Not Just Black and White, Nancy Foner and George M. Fredrickson bring together a distinguished group of social scientists and historians to consider the relationship between immigration and the ways in which concepts of race and ethnicity have evolved in the United States from the end of the nineteenth century to the present. The book opens with an examination of historical and theoretical perspectives; it considers the shifting role of state policy in defining race and ethnicity; and explores socioeconomic trends that have affected, and continue to affect, the development of ethno-racial identities and relations. Foner is a distinguished professor of sociology at The Graduate Center and Baruch College. Fredrickson is the co-director of the Research Institute for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity at Stanford University.
