Drawing from sociology, social history, and personal family histories, Myers (Rowan University) examines racial and ethnic minority groups and their experiences in American society. He offers a theoretical model to explain and predict intergroup relations and applies it to the study of nine minority groups, during different periods. The groups studied are: Native Americans, African Americans, Irish Americans, German Americans, Italian Americans, Jewish Americans, Japanese Americans, Mexican Americans, and Vietnamese Americans.
