Jews and the new American scene by Seymour Martin Lipset( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and German and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors vividly illustrate this paradox as it is experienced by American Jews today - in their high rates of intermarriage, their waning observance of religious rites, their extraordinary academic and professional success, their commitment to liberalism in domestic politics, and their steadfast defense of Israel. Yet Jews view these trends with a sense of foreboding: "We feel very comfortable in America - but anti-Semitism is a serious problem"; "We would be desolate if Israel were lost - but we don't feel as close to that country as we used to"; "More of our youth are seeking some serious form of Jewish affirmation and involvement but more of them are slipping away from Jewish life." These are the contradictions tormenting American Jews as they struggle anew with the never-dying problem of Jewish continuity

Prejudice and society by Earl Raab( Book )

12 editions published between 1956 and 1968 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph consists of six chapters which discuss the problem of prejudice in our society. Chapter I looks at "Prejudice as a Social Problem." As a social problem prejudice can be defined exclusively in terms of human behavior which denies or attempts to deny equality of opportunity or status to certain racial, religious, or ethnic groups. Prejudiced behavior treats individuals as though they were not individuals at all but, rather, indistinguishable parts of a classified group. "The Shifting Nature of Prejudice" is discussed in Chapter ii. Prejudiced attitudes do not predetermine prejudiced behavior. An individual's prejudiced behavior may be determined more by the social situation at any given moment than by his pre-existing attitudes. Chapter iii "Learning Prejudice" points out that the learning of prejudice is effected primarily by the kinds of social situations in which people live. Chapter iv "The Prejudiced Community" discusses how the pattern of community practices is the fountainhead of prejudice. The growing child learns his social behavior primarily by following the modes and models of behavior around him. "Family and Group Influences in the Prejudiced Community" is the topic of Chapter V. The complex of prejudicial practices within a community provides the family and other traditional groups with the "frame of reference" which perpetuates these practices and sustains prejudice. "Some Implications for Action" is the topic of the concluding chapter. The custom of prejudice may be changed through remedial social action. Various channels of social action such as the law, direct action, mass media, the schools, and community groups may help to effect this change. In addition, the individual must examine and attempt to understand his own behavior and attitudes. (Author/RM)
The anatomy of Nazism by Earl Raab( Book )

7 editions published between 1961 and 1978 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a real danger that what we have learned will not be effectively communicated, especially to young people. This pamphlet will help meet the need for educational materials that spell out the meaning of totalitarianism. While it concentrates on Nazism, it calls attention to the general totalitarian features of that movement and regime. Thus, guides are offered toward a better understanding of what lies behind today's headlines."--Preface
