Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, this book examines the intersection of race and ethnic relations and the life course. The essays in the volume thus reflect varieties of qualitative and quantitative methods in order to look at how these variables shape social organization and the experiences of those who live within the boundaries of society. The essays include works that use semi-structured interviews, ethnographies, and auto-ethnographies to inform the analysis of race, ethnicity and the life course.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Almost all public discussion about race and ethnicity is expressed in terms of generalizations, sometimes taking account of history, almost never taking account of time lived by real human beings. This book is one if the first to take account of time, aging, and the life-course. An important contribution to our understanding of issues which will not soon go away." - Harry R. Moody, Retired Vice President, AARP, and Visiting Professor, Fielding Graduate University, USA; Author of AGING: Concepts and Controversies (2011)

"Race and the Lifecourse is a groundbreaking work that examines how race shapes important phases in human development. This edited collection shows that youth, adulthood and old age, like other aspects of life, are marked by racial and ethnic difference." Antonia Randolph, Professor of Sociology, Social Work, and Anthropology, Christopher Newport University, USA
