Puerto Rico past and present : an encyclopedia by Ronald Fernandez( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 1,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ready reference guide to more than 500 years of political, social, economic, and cultural development in Puerto Rico fills a conspicuous information gap. It rectifies what has been to date a lack of easily accessible, accurate, and relevant information in English about Puerto Rico and its 3.6 million inhabitants. From African roots to El Yunque (Puerto Rico's tropical rain forest), this encyclopedia offers nearly 300 substantive entries on important people, places, events, social and political issues, legislation, movements and organizations, and terms and concepts. Entries celebrate the history, achievements, and creations of the Puerto Rican people. Each entry concludes with a short list of suggested reading for further information."--Jacket
Mappers of society : the lives, times, and legacies of great sociologists by Ronald Fernandez( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fernandez examines the lives and ideas of sociologists who shaped the main contours of the discipline. Weber, Marx, Durkheim, and Simmel fashioned the early ideas and approaches of sociology, and their ideas are still central to the discipline. Veblen, Mead, Goffman, and Berger added crucial conceptual approaches; they also serve to underscore the length and breadth of Sociology as a science
America's banquet of cultures : harnessing ethnicity, race, and immigration in the twenty-first century by Ronald Fernandez( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author seeks to forge a positive national consensus based on two building blocks. First, the nation's many ethnic groups can be a powerful source of unprecedented economic, artistic, educational, and scientific creativity. Second, this wealth of cultural opportunity offers a way to erase the black/white dichotomy that, as it poisons everyday life, masks the shared injustices of millions of European, Asian, African, Native and Latino Americans. Fernandez offers a provocative analysis of how we arrived at our current ethnic and racial dilemmas and what can be done to move beyond them. Concerned citizens, scholars and students of American immigration, ethnic studies and social policy will find this book insightful and thought provoking."--Jacket
America beyond black and white : how immigrants and fusions are helping us overcome the racial divide by Ronald Fernandez( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A call for a new way of imagining race in America. For the first time in U.S. history, the black-white dichotomy that has historically defined race and ethnicity is being challenged, not by a small minority, but by the fastest-growing and arguably most vocal segment of the increasingly diverse American population 'Mexicans, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Indians, Arabs, and many more' who are breaking down and recreating the very definitions of race. Drawing on interviews with hundreds of Americans who don't fit conventional black/white categories, the author invites us to empathize with these 'doubles' and to understand why they may represent our best chance to throw off the strictures of the black/white dichotomy. Ronald Fernandez is Professor of Sociology in the Criminal Justice Department at Central Connecticut State University
Cruising the Caribbean : U.S. influence and intervention in the twentieth century by Ronald Fernandez( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(This book was prompted by two questions: Why do intelligent men and women sometimes pursue inconsistent or contradictory foreign policies? And, why do otherwise decent people sometimes pursue admittedly cruel political, economic, and military strategies?)
Social psychology through literature by Ronald Fernandez( Book )

13 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For an in-depth appreciation of motivation in human behavior, there are excerpts from works by Kazantzakis, Balzac, Benjamin Constant. For the idea of identity and anxiety, there's material from Roger Martin du Gard, Herman Hesse, and Dostoyevsky. In the same way, selections from Steinbeck, Tolstoy and F. Scott Fitzgerald lend currency to the concept of class, caste and regional differences.
