Bargains, Elizabeth Ann 2013 0-7734-4338-X 180 pages This book offers a revealing synopsis of the attempts of the SES to diversify its membership at a time when the possibility of historic gains in racial and gender equality are very much possible. It investigates the gender and racial bias and the progress that America is making to eliminate a very sordid history of recruitment practices and the selection of SES members.
This work is a significant contribution that will strengthen the body of knowledge in which recruitment selection, and placement of minorities and women in upper management positions fill a critical void in the 21st Century America at the Federal level, and government and the private sector in general.
LePore, Herbert P. 2013 0-7734-4471-8 320 pages A most thorough examination of the political, cultural, economic, psychological, and racial discrimination issues, including physical violence that brought about the implementation of ignominious, unwarranted, and unprecedented state and federal exclusionary legislation against Chinese and Japanese immigrants living in California and adjoining states during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Munford, Clarence J. 1992 0-7734-9433-2 379 pages Along with reflections on the slavery-capitalism-racism causal chain, this book reveals the tight bond between the Black West Indies and Africa through analysis of socio-political conditions in Africa, and of the ethnic origins of diaspora Africans. The years from 1625 to 1715 are the time when the scaffolding of the plantation slave economy was erected. It triggered the dialectic between the slave mode of extracting surplus labor from captive Africans on the one side, and the profit exigencies of nascent capitalism, on the other. This dialectic made the installation of the capitalist mode of production in the western hemisphere a peculiarly racist phenomenon. This book seeks to show also that the lasting community of Blacks which emerged in the French West Indies during those years was permanently conditioned by this dialectic. The period from 1625-1715 has been neglected.

Loubser, J. A. 1990 0-7734-9794-3 224 pages Addresses the question of whether South Africa will succeed in building a non-racial and democratic society out of the ruins of apartheid. Describes the philosophy that led to the acceptance by the Dutch Reformed Church of biblical proofs for apartheid in 1943 and eventually led to its rejection in 1986. Makes a structural analysis of South African history, showing the interaction between social realities and white theology in each succeeding phase, in an effort to improve the fact that although "apartheid watchers" and interpreters of contemporary South African society recognize the importance of the Afrikaana churches in the political process, they often find it difficult to assess the role of the churches.
Hall, Ronald E. 2003 0-7734-6817-X 328 pages This study will give readers new insight into skin color as a crux of Western discrimination including America and its non-white citizenry. That insight will characterize a seldom-discussed aspect of discrimination by analyzing its perpetration between and among African, Asian, Hispanic, native, feminist, and gay/lesbian Americans. It goes beyond the usual black/white dichotomy to examine the secret taboos of previously oppressed populations, and address the aftermath of colonization in the ways in which dark-skinned American – regardless of race – are perceived.
Misir, Prem 2006 0-7734-5552-3 268 pages Addresses the allegations of racism as one of the major themes in political commentaries in the multi-ethnic Caribbean and its Diaspora. The book advocates an understanding of inter and intra-ethnic class structure as a useful conceptual tool to address the issues of ethnic cleavage, racism, and discrimination, using a power-conflict framework that illustrates that inter and intra-ethnic class structure emphasizes economic stratification, caste, internal colonialism, and a diversity of class-based and Marxist theories.
Morris, John L. 1993 0-7734-9325-5 304 pages These essays explore the nature and effect of differing categories of stereotype: racial, social, sexual, class media, cultural, etc. Essays examine how best-selling novels gain their effect from the use of stereotyping of the Negro and Jew; the way in which women in Victorian England were expected to be seen; the use of working-class stereotypes; how literature and other cultural productions portray people and situations in terms of the media even to the extent of their being reduced to electronically projected images representative of the accelerating standardization and mechanization of mass society.

Gibson, Rachel K. 2002 0-7734-7269-X 248 pages The book explains the rise in support for parties in Western Europe with a strongly anti-immigrant stance during the early 1990s. Using extensive multi-level data analysis that combines individual and party opinion data with aggregate statistics from a total of fourteen Western European nations, it concludes that support comes from a combination of ‘overt’ racists who articulate a highly unapologetic form of racism, and ‘covert’ racists who attempt to hide their racism in practical arguments about immigrants' deleterious socio-economic effects..
“. . . makes a useful contribution to the study of anti-immigrant political parties as well as to the study of how certain attitudes might motivate political behavior. . . . The implications here are important: culturally rooted prejudice is difficult to address with public policies and constitutes a greater destabilizing force than does economic opposition to the presence of immigrants. . . . many parties and many Western European nations are examined. This cross-national focus - with attention to country-specific variation – makes the tests of the hypotheses more rigorous than if they had been tested with data from a single country.” – Patricia A. Hurley

Onsman, Andrys 2014 0-7734-4320-7 232 pages The book traces how Tasmanian Aboriginal people were represented in the past and the political exploitation of their resistance to British settler onslaught as a means to negate their claims for recognition as traditional owners of Tasmania.
Contribution to Scholarship:
A new look at how one of the most influential portrayals of Tasmanian Aboriginal people, the one put forward in the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, has changed from simply reflecting an academic idea to becoming pro-active in presenting contemporary images : a change that began when the museum employed an Aboriginal curator to manage its collection.
Wasserman, Ira 2006 0-7734-5628-7 412 pages Examines the manner in which the national media in the United States treated lynching and vigilante activity between 1850 and 1940.

Smith, Polly J. 2007 0-7734-5401-2 236 pages Investigates the significance of military institutions and their impact on metropolitan level racial and ethnic segregation. By examining the level of segregation, racial composition, and neighborhood characteristics, in neighborhoods considered to be highly impacted by a military institution, the objectives are (1) to demonstrate an institutional effect on segregation at the metropolitan-level; and (2) to assess the social and geographic impact of military institutions in locations where they are dominant. To achieve these objectives, U.S. census data, institutional policy, and community housing market analyses are examined to illustrate the impact of military and institutional policies on metropolitan level segregation and other socioeconomic characteristics.

Gaskew, Tony 2008 0-7734-4812-8 256 pages This book examines the experiences and social conflicts facing Muslim Americans in the aftermath of September 11, 2001, providing insight on how the highly politicized and tense atmosphere which followed the events of 9/11 impacted the relationship between law enforcement agencies and Muslim American communities.

Kallin, Britta 2007 0-7734-5499-3 204 pages Explores the representation of ethnic minorities and the construction of national identities in contemporary plays written by German and Austrian women. The study draws on approaches of cultural and postcolonial studies, African-American and other minority feminist criticism as well as Anglo-American and German feminist scholarship. The plays examined in the book include Kerstin Specht’s Lila, Elfriede Müller’s Goldener Oktober, Bettina Fless’s Asyl, Gundi Ellert’s Jagdzeit, Marlene Streeruwitz’s Bagnacavallo, and Elfriede Jelinek’s Stecken, Stab und Stangl. This book evaluates the characters in terms of visual representation, the way in which they communicate with other characters, and the characters’ involvement in the development of the play. The work demonstrates that the playwrights assign minority characters a restricted verbal capacity that limits their influence on the action of the play, thereby reducing such characters to function merely as catalysts for problems of the German and Austrian communities. The playwrights write with a well-meaning intention but some cannot avoid the trap of their position as self-appointed spokesperson while other offer new positions from where they speak and avoid reproducing stereotypes of the “Other”. This work will appeal to scholars in German studies, feminist studies and drama.

Mongkuo, Maurice Y. 2005 0-7734-5944-8 480 pages This study offers a legally and methodologically acceptable approach that governments can use to generate factual predicate for establishing compelling state interest in adopting race preference programs in government contracting under the United States Supreme Court’s strict scrutiny standard of review. Race preference programs are critical for increasing opportunities among minority firms to do business with government. These programs have come under judicial attack in recent years at both the state and federal government levels because they do not serve a “compelling state interest” to correct discrimination in the government contracting process. The courts rejected these programs as premised on evidence that do not offer a legally and methodologically acceptable probative explanation of the extent to which discrimination influence contract award to minority firms under the United States Supreme Court’s strict scrutiny standard. Using the City of St. Petersburg as the research setting, this study combines quantitative and qualitative approaches to determine probative explanation of the extent to which discrimination influence contract awards to minority-owned firms within the framework of the Supreme Court strict scrutiny standard. These approaches can be relied upon by any government entity to ascertain if race preference and/or race neutral remedial policies are warranted.

Ford, James H. 2022 1-4955-1018-2 176 pages "Below is the theory of Rational Blindness (RB) and its connection to men and women of African descent. Rational Blindness is seductively inductive reasoning that those of African descent find themselves using to navigate their worlds, worlds controlled by racism and oppression. Rational Blindness is a phenomenon that can disrupt the development of self-efficacy for many men and women within these societies. Rational Blindness, for African Americans, is acquired primarily through oppression and racism. ...[Those] who are browbeaten must slip the blindfold over their eyes and accept their position as rational. Every decision after that is made using the blind rationale. Rational Blindness is one way that ideology affects one's ability to judge clearly. What one believes establishes what one can see and think." -James H. Ford
Irogbe, Kema 1997 0-7734-2294-3 336 pages This study examines the relationship between owners of the United States multinational corporations of South Africa and the United States government. The significance of the study is threefold: 1) demonstrating how the United States foreign policy from Nixon to Reagan changed in basic strategy without a fundamental change in its mission, in terms of its support of the apartheid regime; 2) throwing more light on the US government's economic, political and military-strategic interest in South Africa and its symbiotic relations with the apartheid regime; and 3) contributing to the existing knowledge of the US involvement in South Africa by linking public opinion with the class interest of American foreign policy during the administrations of Presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan.

Hall, Ronald E. 2004 0-7734-6372-0 177 pages The scientific validity of race has always been assumed. In the Historical aftermath of the Atlantic slave trade race is in fact a complex and divisive fallacy profoundly woven into the fabric of American society. Subject to political directives, scholars have subsequently made assumptions about people based upon their racial heritage to realize political aspirations. Thus, the fallacy of race has been fundamental to political exploitation and racism in the 21st century. This book exposes this function of race as little more than a political tool to insure power and wealth remain the bastions of post-colonial power structures.
