U.S. Ethnic Geography is designed for students of geography and ethnic studies. Readers experience a variety of perspectives from the materials presented and gain valuable insight into the very complex nature of the people residing in the United States. This country has a long history of receiving immigrants beginning with the Europeans in the fifteenth century and continuing today. Even when the rulers of this land were the indigenous people (Native Americans), they themselves have a history of immigrating to the area during the Ice Age several thousand years ago. The differences now obviously center around the sources of the people and the numbers of people coming to this portion of North America.

 

U.S. Ethnic Geography is divided into five units, diving into the topics of diversity, equality, and the importance of language.

· Unit 1 contains a series of articles setting the stage for class discussion around the key concepts of race, ethnicity, class, and gender. 

· Unit 2 concentrates on the experiences of the African American in the United States.

· Unit 3 addresses the experiences of the Asian Americans.

· Unit 4 concentrates on the Latin American populations.

· Unit 5 the Native American groups.
