This series publishes outstanding scholarship that focuses centrally on comparative studies of race and ethnicity. Rather than exploring the experiences and conditions of a single racial or ethnic group, this series looks across racial and ethnic groups in order to take a more complex, dynamic, and interactive approach to understanding these social categories.
Books in this series seriously engage with two or more groups or one group studied across large geographic boundaries. Though the series emphasizes the study of racial and ethnic groups in the United States, it is also concerned with transnational, international, and global contexts. Works from this series predominantly use social science, humanistic, or interdisciplinary approaches. These include (but are not limited to) anthropology, cultural studies, economics, education, ethnic studies, history, linguistics, literary criticism, political science, psychology, public policy, religion, sociology, and urban studies.
This series is published in collaboration with the Stanford Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity.
