The US Census Bureau estimates that by the year 2000, the nonwhite population in the US will number 80 million (29% of the total).1 By 2050, people of ethnic skin will make up almost half of the American population. These changing demographics will both alter the culture and politics of this nation and change health care needs. As much as any other medical field, dermatology will need to expand to better serve these heretofore underrecognized populations. This book is one of the first texts designed to address this need.
