Chapter 9: Race and ethnicity
This chapter first introduces readers to the study of race, and then secondly the study of ethnicity, noting both the historical and contemporary significance of each. In the third section, the chapter discusses how both these categories can feature in a particular area, specifically health and well-being. Focusing on three examples, this final section illustrates how and why categories of race and ethnicity can both help and hinder an understanding of good social policies.
