SIDELIGHTS:

Author and editor Winston A. Van Horne, a professor of Africology at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, has edited a number of books on race and ethnicity. Ethnicity and Public Policy, the first in a series based on the Green Bay Colloquia at the University of Wisconsin, includes a varied series of seven in-depth essays on ethnicity and how it is reflected in, and affected by, public policy in the United States. Articles in the book consider the significance of disagreements over the meaning of racial and ethnic identity; ethnicity in U.S. immigration policies; resource development on land owned by Native Americans; the bureaucratic manipulation of non-English speakers in the United States; and increases in military service by African Americans. "The essays constitute a good addition to the literature on ethnicity," commented Dianne M. Pinderhughes in the Political Science Quarterly.

Ethnicity and the Work Force contains eight sociohistorical articles that address racial and ethnic group participation in the labor force, and considers topics relevant to why some ethnic groups are more successful than others in the job market. Ethnicity and Women provides another collection of eight scholarly articles looking at the effects of race and identity on women, and applying feminist perspectives to these topics. Ethnicity and Language includes articles that cover such topics as bilingual education, the adoption of English as the official language of many U.S. states, issues related to cultural and language diversity, and the study of foreign languages in schools. Reviewer Wsevolod I. Isajiw, writing in Contemporary Sociology, called the essay collection a "worthwhile contribution to social science."

Race: Twentieth Century Dilemmas, Twenty-first Century Prognoses offers a collection of essays that summarize "historical, legal, and social science research on the status of blacks in education, the family, housing, health, the military, employment, and politics," noted Dale Rogers Marshall in the Political Science Quarterly. Marshall observed that the works represented in the volume suggest that while the status for African Americans has improved greatly over the past hundred years, there remain a number of disparities, and there are even signs that some of the gains made over the century are slowly and subtly being reversed. Authors in the volume consider the changing relationship between race and class; the intermingling of race and justice; racial housing patterns; and race differences in health care status. "Together the articles provide a broad perspective across diverse policy areas," Marshall concluded.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
