An updated comprehensive assessment of how race and ethnicity affect the places we live, work, and visit.

“This timely volume is a storehouse of knowledge that brings together a wide selection of scholars in a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of race, ethnicity, and place. The primacy of place in ethnic and racial discourse is resurrected in this volume.” — Professor Joseph Oppong, University of North Texas

“The authors of this already successful ethnic geography book have updated their work in ways that snap with intellect. Many new chapters also enhance the themes of race, ethnicity, and place. The anthology’s rich, thoughtful analyses of the historical geographies of American minorities are like no other text. Carefully selected place-based examples of contemporary processes and patterns of race and ethnicity change the way we think about North American geographical experiences. This splendid transdisciplinary collection is essential reading for understanding the critical cultural motifs of the peopling of the continent.” — Professor Lawrence E. Estaville, Texas State University
