Early this Spring I decided to take on the task of an Honors Intercultural Studies course at De Anza College. Although I had taken many classes of the same genre, little could have prepared me for the mass of knowledge that I would obtain. Through reading an average of 60-80 pages of "Interethnic Relations in America" each week, I have been able to gain not only a cultural perspective, but a sociological and historical one too! I have found that although it is challenging because it contains SO much information, that it reigns as a great work because it is seemingly non-biased, very modern, and well written. I would definetly reccommend this book to people of all ages, races, ethnicities, regardless of their "cultural baggage." I have been forced to think, and thus I feel compelled to share my experinces with others. This book can truly change your life in many ways! Not to mention that my professor has used it at both Stanford and Berkeley in the past!

It is a shame to think that some teachers are using this as their only text. As such, it gives a totally distorted view of so-called "Anglos" and "Whites" in America. For instance, in the chapters on American Indians, the Spanish depravity visited on the indigenous peoples in what is now the American west and southwest isn't even mentioned. The authors assertions of peaceful assimilation by the Spanish of the indigenous peoples (p. 199) is irresponsible and absurd. But this book is sure to please the America-hating politically correct crowd that equates white European Americans with Satan.

Although the book does focus on most of the white people who were racist... It also contains some helpful history on Native Americans and Vietnamese immigration. The history of racism is fairly hard to talk about without addressing the violence and hatred that has actually occurred.
