9780761940425: The Sociology of Ethnicity

′Malesevic has written a masterwork. Indeed, The Sociology of Ethnicity will rapidly become required reading, especially for those seeking an introduction to the field. Its structure and style promise to make it appealing and useful in a range of courses′

- Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism

Spanning classical sociology to current debates, The Sociology of Ethnicity synthesizes the leading sociological interpretations of ethnic relations and provides a coherent theoretical framework for its analysis.

In this thoughtful and accessible text, Sinisa Malesevic assesses the explanatory strength of a range of sociological theories in understanding ethnicity and ethnic conflict. While acknowledging that there is no master key or blue-print to deal with each and every case of interethnic group relations, The Sociology of Ethnicity develops the best strategy to bridge epistemological and policy requirements for interethnic group relations.

The Sociology of Ethnicity will be required reading for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates studying ethnicity and race in sociology, politics or cultural studies.

Review:

Malesevic has written a masterwork. Indeed, The Sociology of Ethnicity will rapidly become required reading, especially for those seeking an introduction to the field. Its structure and style promise to make it appealing and useful in a range of courses
Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism

Malesevic is always compelling. He evenhandedly fulfills his stated purpose of surveying the leading theories on ethnicity. In doing so, Malesevic introduces the reader to a vast range of first-rate thinkers
Tony Osborne
Communication Research Trends

This book offers an original synthesis of existing knowledge, pointing forward in a manner that could influence a new generation’s conception of the field and its agenda. If it attracts the attention it merits, it could prove one of the most important books about ethnic and racial relations since the nineteen-eighties
Michael Banton
Ethnic and Racial Studies

Malesevic provides a thorough and balanced account of the sociological foundations of the study of ethnicity... an impressive survey... His presentation is as critical and engaging as it is easy to read and logically organized. It is invaluable reading for sociologists
