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 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a social problem in america today, 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. Prejudice is considered a social problem because it presents a threat to social order by breaking down human relationships, results in a waste of human resources, and is a threat to democratic life. Prejudiced behavior is not predetermined by prejudiced attitudes but by the social situations in which a person lives. The pattern of community practices, for example, is the basis for many prejudices. Segregated schools, buses, and waiting rooms, complete social segregation, habits of deference, the education and employment status of minority groups, and the philosophy of mass media are among these community practices. Social patterns, in turn, directly influence the home attitudes which so greatly shape the attitudes and behavior of children. The custom of prejudice, once examined and understood, may be changed through remedial social action. Such channels of social action as the law, mass media, the schools, and community groups may help to effect this change. In addition, the individual should examine and attempt to understand his own behavior and attitude
The anatomy of Nazism by Earl Raab( Book )

7 editions published between 1961 and 1978 in English and held by 168 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
