This book covers the major topics in the examination of the relationship between race, ethnicity, health, social and behavioral factors, and health policy. It is divided into five fundamental sections covering cross-cutting issues such as demography, morbidity, and mortality from an ethnic/racial perspective, theories and factors that account for disparities, issues relating to specific ethnic/racial groups, and conclusions pointing toward change in policy and services delivery. The book is a concise and comprehensive resource for students and faculty in courses in minority health and vulnerable populations, such as are given in schools of public health, nursing, community health education, medical anthropology, sociology, and medicine
