Hi Peter,
I've used Eckert's book but I've also used this book: Davidson, A.L.
(1996). Making and molding identity in schools. Albany, NY: State
University of New York Press. Davidson discusses students in a multiracial
high school in California (it isn't 21st century). My students found the
cases quite realistic.
