Collision course : the strange convergence of affirmative action and immigration policy in America by Hugh Davis Graham( Book )

15 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 were passed, they were seen as triumphs of liberal reform applauded by the majority of Americans. But today, as Hugh Graham shows in Collision Course, affirmative action is foundering in the great waves of immigration from Asia and Latin America, leading to direct conflict for jobs, housing, education, and government preference programs." "How did two such well-intended laws come to loggerheads? Graham argues that a sea change occurred in American political life in the late 1960s, when a system of split government - one party holding the White House, the other holding Congress - divided authority and enhanced the ability of interest groups to win expanded benefits. In civil rights, this led to a shift from nondiscrimination to the race-conscious remedies of hard affirmative action. In immigration, it led to a surge that by 2000 had brought 35 million immigrants to America, 26 million of them Asian or Latin American and therefore eligible, as "official minorities," for affirmative action preferences. The policies collided when employers, acting under affirmative action plans, hired millions of immigrants while leaving high unemployment among inner-city blacks. Rising competition for affirmative action benefits by Latinos stirred black resentment; participation by Asians, whose average family income and education exceeded that of whites, was widely viewed as unfair. The sharp rise in racially mixed marriages among the children of immigrants challenged the one-drop rule and threatened the concept of official minorities upon which affirmative action depended."--Jacket

The uncertain triumph : federal education policy in the Kennedy and Johnson years by Hugh Davis Graham( Book )

7 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using the Kennedy and Johnson archives to analyze the evolution of educational policy from the perspective of the executive branch, Graham finds that the central theme was executive planning through presidential task forces. Mission agencies, clientele groups, and congressional committees produced a cascade of education programs in the 1960s as the administration was collapsing under the weight of the Vietnam war, inflation, and collective violence, yet the last two decades have witnessed a decline in test scores and basic literacy." -- Publisher's description
Civil rights and the presidency : race and gender in American politics, 1960-1972 by Hugh Davis Graham( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a story about a rare event in America: a radical shift in national social policy. Its precondition was a broader social revolution, the black civil rights movement that surged up from the South, followed by the nationwide rebirth of the feminist movement. The story's main focus, federal policy in civil rights during 1960-72, was originally conceived, like most studies of civil rights, as centering almost exclusively on racial policy. But the evidence and the logic of civil rights theory demanded an inclusion of gender as well as racial policy. - Introduction
The rise of American research universities : elites and challengers in the postwar era by Hugh Davis Graham( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hugh Davis Graham and Nancy Diamond employ a novel approach that leads to controversial findings. Moving beyond traditional methods of rating the reputations of universities, they offer instead an empirical analysis of faculty productivity based on research grants and fellowships, published research, and peer citation of published work. Comparing the research achievements of faculty at more than two hundred institutions since the 1960s, Graham and Diamond measure research productivity of entire campuses across academic fields ranging from medicine to humanities, and they analyze data on research activity in per capita terms

Civil rights in the United States( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is true that progress has been made in the struggle for civil rights for racial and ethnic minorities and women. This collection of essays, however, seeks more than simply to measure the success of civil rights policy in America. Instead, the contributors ask how both civil rights problems and the policies developed to remedy them have been affected by the distinctive historical forces that have shaped the American political culture. Written from diverse disciplinary, topical, and cultural perspectives, these essays offer readers a broad and historically informed analysis of civil rights policy that should foster reasoned discussion, academic debate, and further research

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The transformation of federal education policy : the Kennedy and Johnson years by Hugh Davis Graham( Book )

6 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Archive-based historical analysis brings a perspective to policy studies that is lacking in individual case studies. The recently opened Kennedy and Johnson archives facilitate an internal analysis of the evolution of education policy formulation in the 1960s from the perspective of the executive branch. The central thread of continuity for such an analysis is executive planning through presidential task forces, such as those coordinated in the mid-1960s by Bill Moyers and Joseph Califano. While task forcing was for Kennedy largely a one-shot campaign effort of dubious efficacy, it was crucial for Johnson's construction of the Great Society's programmatic base. Task forces provide both a window into the education policy processes of the 1960s and a point of entry into the surrounding political context. From the perspective of the 1980s, the escalation of the Vietnam War in 1966 and its budgetary consequences appear to mark a turning point away from Johnson's Great Society programs. Although the Kennedy-Johnson initiatives were overwhelmed by the social tides that flowed around them and did not successfully rescue the poor through education, they contributed to an interest in the quality of education that extends even into the Reagan era.
