Uchmanowicz presents a concise, thematic, student reader featuring multiethnic writing by contemporary American authors. The 33 selections explore ritual as evidenced in schooling and sports, representation as evidenced in the media and other forms of social visibility, and rights in the areas of language and the workplace, collectively demonstrating how race, class, gender, and nationality intersect and diverge in society and in writing. The text includes questions for discussion, writing assignments, and suggestions for further research. No subject index. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
