“The most critical dimension of desegregation in our region is found in the attitudes of members of the dominant white communities. Melvin Tumin, a sociology professor at Princeton University, and eleven associates... have done a first-rate job mapping this vital dimension in an opinion study of citizens of Guilford County, North Carolina... the best effort yet to plumb citizens’ attitudes on this agonizing modern problem.”—Reading Guide, Law Library of University of Virginia.Originally published in 1958.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

21 editions published between 1957 and 1975 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literature on segregation and integration of negroes and whites in the united states is presented. The literature surveyed is confined to articles which appeared in professional journals in the period january 1, 1951, to july 1, 1956. segregation and integration in various institutional areas include interracial activities in southern churches, in the U.S. army, in industry, in public and private housing, and in a small new england town. Factors affecting the process of desegregation are resistance movements, educational programs, and supreme court decisions. The articles concerning negro-white differences include aspiration levels, army test scores, academic achievements, and occupational attitudes. The area of negro political behavior involves such subjects as the reenfranchisement of negroes, negro masses and leaders, and extremist movements among negroes. Theoretical issues in the analysis of prejudice and discrimination include articles on conformity, attitudes of white southerners, and intergroup relations. Other areas covered are the negro's status in the economic structure, migration and residence, desegregation processes in various states, and comparative pathologies
An inventory and appraisal of research on American anti-Semitism by Melvin M Tumin( Book )

Discusses research and surveys relating to antisemitism in the USA published in the 1930s-50s. Presents digests of empirical/experimental research, but does not deal with the scope or classification of antisemitism. Relates to the issues of psychological and sociological characteristics of antisemites; status, mobility, and reference groups as factors in antisemitism; non-Jewish views of Jews, which are sometimes stereotyped; and Jewish views of Jews, sometimes self-hating. Several chapters are devoted to theories and speculations on causes of antisemitism, e.g. religious, economic, and political factors. also surveyed in this work, commissioned by the Anti-Defamation League, are proposals for combating antisemitism

Race and intelligence, an evaluation by Melvin M Tumin( Book )

8 editions published between 1962 and 1963 in English and Undetermined and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report of unesco committee stated that there were not measurable differences between what is due to innate capacity and what is the result of environmental influences, training, and education. Tests which have made allowance for most differences in environmental opportunities have shown essential similarity in mental characteristics among all human groups. The unesco report has been challenged by a series of publications contending that it ignored scientific evidence that the negro in the united states is inferior in intelligence to the white. Four distinguished experts in tests and measurements, psychology, social and cultural patterns, and anthropology were asked to state their opinions on the challenge. Questions were asked on innate capacity, test reliability, negro intelligence, and other innate differences between negro and white. The scientists are in substantial agreement that the claims of the challenging publications cannot be supported by any substantial scientific evidence. Moreover, future claims of innate differences between negro and white cannot be valid unless--distinctive racial homogeneity of the group is demonstrated, social and cultural backgrounds of the group are equal, and adequate tests of proved reliability and validity are used

Education, social class, and intergroup attitudes in England, France, and Germany by Melvin M Tumin( Book )

5 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central focus of this report is on the interrelationships among social class, education, and intergroup attitudes. A second major focus of this research concerns the factors that shape english, french, and german attitudes toward "outsiders." Specifically, the study investigated (1) the extent and type of impact that the educational systems of these countries have had upon the beliefs and attitudes of their people, (2) the difference in these areas between youth and adults, and (3) the ways in which the beliefs and attitudes of youth resemble those of adults. These relationships are explored by the analysis of data secured from interviews conducted with national samples of the populations of england, france, and germany in late 1960 and early 1961. this report represents an interim stage in a larger project.
