Geographical perspectives on the changing patterns of
race and ethnicity in the United States.


In an
approach that differs from other publications on U.S. multiculturalism,
Multicultural Geographies examines the changing patterns of race and
ethnicity in the United States from geographical perspectives. It reflects the
significant contributions made by geographers in recent years to our
understanding of the day-to-day experiences of American minorities and the
historical and current processes that account for living spaces, persistent
patterns of segregation and group inequalities, and the complex geographies that
continue to evolve at local and regional levels across the country. One of the
book’s underlying themes is the dynamic and complex nature of U.S.
multiculturalism and the academic difficulty in evaluating it from a single
viewpoint or theoretical stance. As such, Multicultural Geographies is
derived from the joint efforts of selected scholars to bring together diverse
perspectives and approaches in documenting the experiences of American
minorities and the issues that affect them.
