Turning back : the retreat from racial justice in American thought and policy by Stephen Steinberg( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turning Back traces social science writing on race relations over the past half-century. Beginning with Gunnar Myrdal's classic, An American Dilemma, Stephen Steinberg shows how mainstream social science placed a liberal gloss on racism and failed to champion civil rights. Not until the racial crisis of the 1960s was there a willingness to confront racism "in all of its hideous fullness," and to place responsibility for the nation's racial problems on major political and economic institutions. During the post-Civil Rights era the focus of blame has again shifted away from societal institutions onto blacks themselves. Turning Back is a trenchant critique of this "scholarship of backlash." Steinberg challenges liberals as well as conservatives, blacks as well as whites, who have fueled the backlash and provided a spurious intellectual cover for gutting affirmative action and other policies designed to alleviate racial inequalities
The academic melting pot; Catholics and Jews in American higher education by Stephen Steinberg( Book )

17 editions published between 1973 and 1977 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author asserts that "historically, Catholic and Jewish immigrants started life in America with radically different value orientations with respect to education and intellectual achievement." He concludes that in this century the resulting imbalance in the participation of these groups in higher education is being redressed as the bulk of Catholic immigrants are integrated into American life.

Race and ethnicity in the United States : issues and debates by Stephen Steinberg( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by leading scholars in the field, all of the readings clearly and thoughtfully explore the intersections among the academy, public policy, and popular understandings of race and ethnicity. The format is ideal for examining these hotly debated issues: two readings cover each topic thus offering contrasting viewpoints that encourage thought and discussion."--Jacket

The American academic profession by Stephen Steinberg( )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""This book covers well the issues and problems of the U.S. academic profession in the second half of the twentieth century."--Contemporary ScienceThe tale of the American academic profession-that large company of men and women, unprecedented in its size and diversity-needs to be written. A large historical literature on America's colleges and universities exists, but much of it is unashamedly hagiographic. On the other hand, more critical works see American universities as being in dire need of massive reform. This charge is not sustained by the contributors to The American Academic Profession, who hope to shatter the code of silence that passes for discretion, by focusing on the forces that have conspired to create the American academic profession. Graubard includes contributions from important scholars around the world: "How the Academic Profession is Changing" by Arthur Levine; "Small Worlds, Different Worlds: The Uniqueness and Troubles of American Academic Professions" by Burton R. Clark; "The Elusive Academic Profession: Complexity and Change" by Francis Oakley; "Uncertainties in the Changing Academic Profession" by Walter E. Massey; "Stewards of Opportunity: America's Public Community Colleges" by Patrick M. Callan; "Public Universities as Academic Workplaces" by Patricia J. Gumport; "Survival of the Fittest? Postgraduate Education and the Professoriate at the Fin de Sibcle" by R.M. Douglas; "Reflections on the Culture Wars" by Eugene Goodheart; "A Blow Is Like an Instrument" by Charles Bernstein; "The Science Wars and the Future of the American Academic Profession" by Jay A. Labinger; "The Scientist as Academic" by Cheryl B. Leggon; "The 'Place' of Knowledge in the American Academic Profession" by Sheldon Rothblatt; "Border Crossings: Organizational Boundaries and Challenges to the American Professoriate" by Theodore R. Mitchell; "The Development of Information Technology in American Higher Education" by Martin Trow; and "An International Academic Crisis? The American Professoriate in Comparative Perspective" by Philip G. Altbach. The American Academic Profession is not sanguine about what is currently happening in higher education, or what it imagines the future portends. It simply asks the question: Can a society truly understand its universities and colleges when it has moved too quickly from uncritical admiration to uniformed and ungenerous complaint? This volume intends to dispel some long-persistent myths in favor of objective truth. It is a must for anyone interested in academic problems, for those who work in higher education, and for everyone interested in American ideas, traditions, and social and intellectual history. Stephen R. Graubard is editor of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and its journal, Daedalus, and professor of history emeritus at Brown University."--Provided by publisher

This nationwide study investigated respondents' opinions on current affairs at both the national and international levels. Issues such as morality in the United States, approval of the United Nations, and the positon of the United States in world affairs were explored, as well as attitudes toward the Constitution and individual rights.
