Since the first European settlement in the New World, race, ethnicity, and related issues have loomed large in American history. This volume explores these topics, including not only the history of black-white interactions but also attitudes and reactions surrounding Protestants, Native Americans, Irish Catholics, Mexican Americans, Jewish Americans, and other groups. Each of the eight chronological chapters contains a survey essay, an annotated bibliography, and 20 to 30 related public and private documents, including manifestos, speeches, court cases, letters, memoirs, and much more.
