The Quality and Quantity of Contact
Almost thirty authors representing nearly 20 academic institutions are included in this book about race relations on college campuses. As many facets as possible of the college experience are examined: teaching, faculty-student contact, faculty friendships, social distance, dating, music, sexual orientation and much more. Key sociological variables are considered. Some of the articles have been written based on personal experience. The authors present to the reader, meaningfully and responsibly, the quality and quantity of contact between African Americans and whites on predominantly white campuses across our nation.
