6 editions published between 1965 and 1981 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1964, sociologist William McCord, long interested in movements for social change in the United States, began a study of Mississippi's Freedom Summer, in which many thousands of African Americans and summer volunteers campaigned for the expansion of voting rights and other civil rights in the state. Described by his wife as 'an old-fashioned liberal, ' McCord himself, a 'great adventurer, ' believed that he should both examine and participate in events in Mississippi. He accompanied student workers and black Mississippians to courthouses and Freedom Houses, and attracted police attention as he studied the mechanisms of white supremacy and the black non-violent campaign against racial segregation. His book, Mississippi : The Long, Hot Summer, is one of the first examinations of the events of 1964 by an academic. It also provides a compelling, detailed account of Mississippi people and places, including the thousands of student workers who found in the state both opportunities and severe challenges. McCord sought to communicate to a broad audience both the depth of repression in Mississippi and the need for federal action to address what he recognized as national as well as Southern failures to secure civil rights for black Americans. His field work and activism in Mississippi offered a perspective that few other academics or other white Americans had shared. Historian Françoise Hamlin provides a substantial introduction that sets McCord's work within the context of other narratives of Freedom Summer and explores McCord's broader career that combined respected scholarship and social activism"--

The Development of mind by William Maxwell McCord( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The experimental and highly regarded Gifford Lectures at Edinburgh University was endowed in the late nineteenth century. Over the years, participants have including many leading representatives of religion, science, and philosophy. This series has as its subject, The Development of Mind. First published in 1972, the series continues to attract widespread interest. In this volume, contributors argue about the mind from diverse analytical standpoints. The focus of the series remains the relationship between religion, science, and philosophy. This volume attempts to achieve a comprehensive view of the subject of mind. The mental development of children in the light of modern psychology is discussed, and the distinction between "how" and "why" questions is put forward with clarity. The development of mind is further contrasted with the evolution of embryos in the young. The mind is considered as a capacity for intellectual activity, and as a multi-purpose program. Goal-directed behavior and language development are given importance, and issues of cosmic purpose, and the how and why of evolution, are never far from the surface of the argument. The lecturers know their opposition and their positions, and the cut-and-thrust of the discussion has much acumen and wit to it. Issues ranging from the impact of mind on theories of religion, causation, and rational will are examined in an informal, yet compelling, manner."--Provided by publisher
