From race riot to sit-in, 1919 and the 1960s; a study in the connections between conflict and violence by Arthur Ocean Waskow( Book )

29 editions published between 1966 and 1975 in English and held by 1,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first half of this volume Arthur Waskow describes and analyzes the major race riots of 1919, explaining how they started, how the behavior of the police was crucial in worsening or ending the riots, how local and national governments and the public generally responded to them, and what steps were taken - and not taken - to avoid future disturbances. The second half is devoted to the emergence in the 1960s of what Dr. Waskow calls 'creative disorder', the effort of the racial-equality movement to use forms of action addressed to effecting real change rather than to to obeying the legal rules or attacking the entrenched enemy. He presents entirely new evidence on some aspects of the movement, especially the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party's convention challenge of 1964; and he develops a new theory of conflict and of how through new inventions in 'creative disorder', racial justice can be achieved without national catastrophe"--Unedited summary from book cover

Becoming brothers by Howard Waskow( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book for brothers - and for sisters, too; for the feelings to which these brothers testify - fear, envy, anger - are familiar to almost everyone who has a sibling. They are heightened and dramatized in the tale of Cain and Abel, which like other stories in the Bible speaks to us of universal themes in human life. Howard and Arthur Waskow grew up as brothers in a quiet Jewish neighborhood in Baltimore during the 1940s. In this unusually honest book they demonstrate that powerful emotions such as these do lie beneath the surface of everyday family life. As with many siblings, behind a superficial layer of civility their relationship was distant, competitive, antagonistic; their conflict extended well into their adult years. Eventually their divorces, their mother's final illness, and their own desire to change brought them toward one another. Wary at first, they set out on a journey of discovery and recovery that was helped to completion by the need to care for their aging father, and by the collaborative writing of this book. Becoming Brothers is uniquely both a record and an instrument of this deliberate and painful reconciliation. In alternating chapters, these brothers reconstruct their struggle piece by piece, crossing back through years of conflict to the roots of their estrangement - often wrestling with contested bits of memory, enlightening and enlivening each other, doing the hard but necessary work of intimate relationship. Theirs is a universal story about the way in which people grow apart and how they can discover one another, and themselves, by acknowledging their similarities and accepting their differences. In the end, the brothers find that only through understanding who they were as sons and brothers can they fulfill their mature roles as husbands and fathers. Their search for wholeness requires them to cooperate and finally to forgive. This beautifully written, humane, and intelligent book reminds its readers not only that everyday life can be deeply significant, but that fundamental change is always possible
