The second edition of Race and Family maintains the book's distinctive feature-its structural lens-while featuring new material throughout. Race and Family focuses on demographic, economic, and historical-legal factors that impact all families, though often disparately. The text also includes separate chapters focusing on the histories and diversity within each major racial-ethnic group.
