SARAND
I would give the book itself two stars but I'm adding two more out of fairness to the entire experience of the transaction. So, two stars for Schaefer and more stars for Amazon.

This textbook was required for my Sociology class so I was stuck with having to buy it. I decided to get it in kindle version so I didn't have to schlepp a textbook around. There were many things about the book itself that I did not like. I did not find the book to be objective. To me, the book was more biased than a textbook for a course should be. I feel that Schaefer presents too many of his opinions and viewpoints as hard factual information. At one point he cited his own book as a reference.

That being said, if you are forced to get this book for required reading, Amazon is Amazon - reliable through and through. If you can work and study comfortably with e-books I would definitely recommed renting it. Shell out as little money as possible because you probably won't care to add this book to your permanent collection. I wasn't good at studying from the kindle book format so I ended up having to get a paper version as well. If you are like me and need a tangible book for highlighting and taking notes in the margins and such, I was able to get an unbound version with the holes for a 3-ring binder from my University's bookstore. I was able to take out the chapters that I was working with and put them in a skinny binder so I didn't have to cart around a textbook. The unbound version was about one-third of the price of the text. The pages were a bit thinner than the pages in a hardcover textbook but not enough to matter. Just don't go whipping the pages around or the holes will rip. I am done with my semester and only accidently ripped three or four pages.

Good Luck!

I have been ordering college books for the past two years and this it the worst yet. Information within text is cut off, page numbers are on inside corners, chapters are not labeled well, no table of contents, graphics poorly organized for black/white print. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Invest money in the electronic version!!!!!!

The book itself is fine. The condition is good. The issue I have is that I specifically chose a book that said "Racial and Ethnic Groups Plus NEW MySocLab with eText -- Access Card Package" because I needed the eText and access card. I realize the book is used, but that's why I chose one that said with access card. The book came without the access card, so I still had to pay over $80 to purchase access online. VERY FRUSTRATING!!! Please, do not label something has having the access card if it does not, in fact, have the access card. A disclaimer somewhere obscure that used items "may not" have access card is not helpful when the description specifically says it has it.

It's a textbook so that, overall, information is fairly predictable. However, organization, sourcing and presentation are excellent. I've had other texts that were less than commendable this way. The content also is not so basic that one would feel they are reading a remedial text while at the same time, it is not overly done for an introductory class on the subject.

Expected more up-to-date stats! Too many statistics remain the same a year later. For example, the same scenario of immigrants are discussed as being 48 or 54 years old in Chapter 4 one year in the 2011 edition and the same age a year later. There are also typos in Chapter 4 in the section entiitled Population Growth, which shows insertion of a clause or two while statistics remain the same or are generalized. My university uses the 2011 twelth edition of this book, I purchased the 2012 thirteenth edition thinking there would be more up-to-stats. My fault I am sure. Perhaps, I should have purchased the fourteenth edition.

The book arrived in good condition. The content and structure of the book, however, is terrible. There are a ridiculous amount of editorial and grammatical mistakes...over a dozen in the first chapter...which really makes it hard to read.

This text baffled me in how small it was and how much was skimmed over for the sake of being so short. While it gives a good primer on overall issues of prejudice and discrimination, as well as including statistical data (now mostly out of date) on different minority groups, its size doesn't leave much room for in-depth evaluations. I suppose it's all in perspective: as a high school text, I'd have rated it highly. As a 300-level college course text, I found it ridiculous. That's not the fault of the author so much as my professor for choosing it, but it also serves as a warning for those who encounter this text in college: you will likely know much of what is in here, and what you don't know will likely be out-of-date statistics. Hopefully college professors will stop using this out-of-print, abecedarian text.
Purchased for a class at Troy University during my undergraduate studies and then sold (as most textbooks are) once finished with it. During my graduate studies I realized that much of this information was still pertinent and useful as sources so i purchased it all over again and now have almost all of the books that I used during my collegiate studies. This is a very informative book and an easy read.
