Qualitative Sociology Review - Volume IV Issue 1 - Contributors

Jack Fong (PhD) is currently a new Assistant Professor of Sociology, in the Department of Psychology and Sociology, at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
Dr. Fong's interests as a political sociologist revolves around issues of ethnicity and race identities, ethnopolitics, and its material consequences. Dr. Fong's interest in ethnicity is derived from America's continuing efforts at redefining itself as different groups reshape the multicultural landscape of the country's rich identities, especially in the context of September 11, 2001. He has already published in Ethnic and Racial Studies. Moreover, his international orientation has also resulted in a historical ethnography based from his field research with the Karen people residing in their state Kawthoolei, and fighting the infamous military regime of Burma. This work will be released as a book via Universal Publishers, Boca Raton, Florida, USA, in mid-June 2008. It is titled Revolution as Development: The Karen Self-Determination Struggle against Ethnocracy from 1949-2004, and is currently entering the final stages of editing.
