During the late 1970's and much of the 1980's the interest of many Americans in racial and ethnic issues seemed to be declining. However, in the 1990's this decline has sharply reversed, and there is much discussion and debate not only about racial and ethnic groups and cultures but also about the racial and ethnic conflict that is often at the center of this society as we approach the twenty-first century.
