Dictionary of race and ethnic relations by Ellis Cashmore( Book )

34 editions published between 1984 and 1998 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Issues of ethnicity and racial relations are almost universally seen as one of the prime motivating forces behind social conflict and change. The often volatile and complex nature of racial interaction resonates through all aspects of modern society. Even social issues which appear to have little or no connection to race often become entangled with ethnic friction to create far more complex problems. Race is also used as a powerful weapon by individuals and political organizations to further their own objectives. It is these issues and problems that the Dictionary of Race and Ethnic Relations addresses. Since the 1988 publication of the second edition of this acclaimed reference book there have been enormous changes in the area of race and ethnic relations throughout the world. In a comprehensive range of alphabetically arranged entries which cover legal concerns, historical developments, and important figures and concepts the Dictionary of Race and Ethnic Relations deals with these changes through in-depth articles which both define and analyze the terms. Developments in South Africa, the 1992 riots in Los Angeles, and the Clarence Thomas hearings are just a few of the broad range of up-to-date subjects covered. In addition, each entry provides a list of cross-references and further reading which make the book a valuable reference tool as well as a teaching aid

Promoting racial harmony by Michael Banton( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years 1965-8 were the 'liberal hour' for race relations policy in Britain. Laws were then enacted, enforcement agencies created, and community relations councils established. These bodies, and their personnel, have been called 'the race relations industry'. To many people, the output of this 'industry' appears disappointing relative to the input into it. This book examines a variety of optimistic assumptions about the speed with which immigrants adjust to a new environment; inadequate minority bargaining power; insufficiently speedy and decisive action by the central government; unwillingness on the part of the white majority to accept the desirability of such action; and the difficulty of fitting a race relations policy into an administrative system created to serve an ethnically homogeneous population. The policies initiated in 1965 reflected the ascendancy of liberal over conservative assumptions about race relations. Now these are under sharp attack from a radical standpoint. Promoting Racial Harmony shows how the debate has changed, drawing upon recent economic theory to formulate the issues in an original but non-technical manner

Political systems and the distribution of power by Michael Banton( Book )

28 editions published between 1965 and 2011 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern political anthropology began in 1940 with the first systematic comparative studies of how primitive societies maintained law and order. The focus was on government and the presence or absence of state institutions. Recently, interest has shifted to the study of power, to examining the manipulation of political relations, and to the task of elaborating a classification of governmental systems that will throw light on the important problems for research. First published in 1965
