The Impact of Macro Social Systems on Ethnic Minorities in the United States Hardback
Governmental social institutions are responsible for major policy decisions that deeply affect our everyday lives.
This edited collection analyzes the effects of the main macro-social systems-law and politics, economic development, education, social welfare, health, mental health, transportation, housing, and religion-on the lives of African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, and Native Americans.
The contributors, who are experts with the particular fields they address, reveal that macro-social systems are characterized by widespread, severe discrimination in the form of laws, attitudes, and behaviors towards ethnic minorities.
Their analyses, which include both historical and contemporary perspectives, are accompanied by suggestions for policy measures aimed at improving the lives of ethnic minorities.
