“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.

A conference on Pluralism in a Democratic Society: An Interdisciplinary Inquiry into its Meaning and Educational Uses, was held in April 1975 in New York. The goals of this conference were: (1) to clearly define cultural pluralism; and (2) to find the best ways of teaching and learning about cultural pluralism in the classroom. The papers that emerged from that conference form the body of this book. The book is divided into three sections. Part One, "a Search for Definition," includes the following papers: "Cultural Pluralism: The Social Aspect," Nathan Glazer; "Cultural Pluralism for Individuals: a Social Vision," Michael Novak; and, "Political Life and Cultural Pluralism," David E. Apter. Part Two, "Psychological Background," includes the following papers: "Political Socialization Research and Respect for Ethnic Diversity," Judith V. Torney and Charles A. Tesconi, Jr.; "Respect for Persons and Ethnic Prejudice in Childhood: a Cognitive-Developmental Description," Florence B.H. Davidson; and, "Child Development and Respect for Cultural Diversity," Irving E. Sigel and James E. Johnson. Part Three, "Curriculum Development," includes two papers: "Cultural Pluralism: Implications for Curriculum," Mari-Luci Jaramillo; and, "Cultural Pluralism: Implications for Curriculum Reform," James A. Banks. (Jm)

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

"Preface Nepotism is a pervasive phenomenon in human organizations (Bellow, 2003). The Family Firm Institute (FFI, 2009), a group of practitioners and academics with about 1,500 members, is designed to provide "education and networking services" to consultants of family firms. The Web page for FFI ( states that family firms are "the dominant form of business organization worldwide." Although this statement appears to be unsubstantiated by research evidence, it would be easy to argue that family connections are a major determinant of behavior in organizations. For example, major stockholders of one of the most successful business enterprises in the last century, Walmart, are relatives of its founder. It is not hard to find other examples of the integration of familial and organizational relationships (Bellow, 2003). Given that a primary purpose of industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology is to study behavior in work organizations from the perspective of scientific psychology, it is remarkable how little descriptive research exists on this topic. A PsychInfo search using the search phrase "nepotism and organizations" yielded 27 articles, and included several about animal behavior (with notable exceptions in the I-O psychology literature by Werbel and Hames, 1996, and Kets de Vries, 1993). Apologists might argue that broader organizational studies have dealt with this under such umbrellas as social capital. However, research in ethological journals suggests that there is a meaningful set of psychological phenomena related specifically to nepotism that has not been explored in organizations. The titles found in this search ("In Praise of Nepotism," "Anti-Nepotism Reconsidered," "Nepotism: Boon or Bane") suggest another possible explanation for this lack of"--
