InThe Field Guide to White People, authors Stephan Dweck and Monteria Ivey provide would-be white-people-watchers with everything they need to know -- so that even novices will be able to identify and become familiar with the eighteen most common North American breeds of white people. Each species in this handy book is identified by recognizable traits, their range, mating and child-rearing habits, things you find in their homes, and useful survival tips, and each is accompanied by a photo showing it in its natural habitat. Some species included in this handy guide are:         The Bible Thumper         The Boston Blueblood         The Georgia Peach         The Trailer Trash         The Computer Geek         The Washington Politician among many more. The Field Guide to White Peopleis the indispensable manual for all students of white people, for those who want to be white, for vacationers from other countries, and all those who need help identifying the breeds of relatives and friends.
