Sociologist Stephen Steinberg argues that traits which are often considered "ethnic" may well be more directly related to class, locality, and other social conditions. Updated with a lengthy epilogue on recent immigrants and a penetrating reappraisal of the black underclass. "An exciting yet level-headed critique . . . a clear, well-written and often provocative analysis." -Herbert Gans, Columbia UniversityStephen Steinberg is the author of 'The Ethnic Myth', published 1989 under ISBN 9780807041512 and ISBN 0807041513.
