Utilizing a mix of methodological and theoretical approaches, the contributors highlight four primary themes:
(1) intersections of race, inequality, and ideology in specific institutional domains (e.g., crime, religion, work, immigration/national inclusion)
(2) the meaning, measurement, and implications of "racial resentment"
(3) the role of social context and stereotypes in shaping racial (and non-racial) policy support
(4) the operation of racial prejudice and stratification ideology in the context of Obama's presidency.
This volume will appeal to a multidisciplinary scholarly audience, including policy-makers interested in current public opinion regarding the American occupational structure and its associated inequalities.
