The Puerto Rican experience; a sociological sourcebook by Francesco Cordasco( Book )

13 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and Dutch and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A serious problem has presented itself to students who sought a convenient sourcebook which afforded an overview of the Puerto Rican mainland experience (with some notice of the island backgrounds), essentially compact, but dimensionally comprehensive. This documentary sourcebook is addressed to that need. It is intended as a classroom text (in a wide range of classes, E.G. urban sociology, ethnic relations, minority groups in the United States, etc.). It addresses also a broad readership which wishes to place the Puerto Rican experience in meaningful perspectives. Part I ("The Island Background") provides a politico-economic-cultural kaleidoscope of island life (at best, a miniscule social portrait deriving from the huge literature noted above) and is intended as a background against which the mainland experience is to be understood. Part ii ("The Migration") brings together the data for a correct appraisal of the phenomenon, including return migration. Part iii ("Life on the mainland: conflict and acculturation") furnishes multi-dimensional perspectives on the mainland experience, with particular notice of the restiveness and new awareness of needs translated into the postures of defiance, E.G. the Young Lords Party and the politicization of the mainland experience in schools, the most sensitive of the social institutions.

Minorities and the American city; a sociological primer for educators by David Nelson Alloway( Book )

4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph attempts to set the new minorities of American cities within a historically intelligible context. Although it addresses itself to educators and schools, it is not limited to this audience alone, and seeks to clarify the complexity as well as the origin of urban "problems." Major concepts from the literature on urbanization have been distilled so that a basic conceptual design may emerge. Power, authority, responsibility, ethnocentrism, class, racial antagonisms, social reform movements, and problems of leadership are related to psychological and sociological components. A clear apprehension of the context and milieu in which education functions is considered imperative if the schools are to continue to provide avenues of social mobility for new residents.
