The issues of race, immigration, and inter-ethnic conflict are daily copy in the world's media; so, too, is growing resistance to the presence of newcomers. In this timely and engrossing collection of his recent writings, internationally recognized sociologist Peter Rose addresses each of these subjects. Concerned mainly with U.S. policies and practices, the first part of the book includes essays on the post-1965 immigration of Asians and Latinos, the Reagan era and its legacy, the growing rhetoric of resentment, and the shifting meanings of "multiculturalism" for white and non-white Americans today. The title essay, Tempest-Tost, is about the plight of refugees. It sets the stage for the second, more narrowly focused section of the book: the making and implementing of U.S. refugee policy and the experiences of those who facilitated the rescue and resettlement of escapees from Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos following the fall of Saigon

Mainstream and margins : Jews, Blacks, and other Americans by Peter I Rose( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of 11 essays on race and ethnicity written over 25 years reflects the thoughts and expressions of the author as they developed. They all focus on some aspects of racial and ethnic relations and the problems faced by individuals in three overlapping social categories: (1) European immigrants, especially Jews; (2) non-White minorities, mainly Blacks; and (3) the sociologists who write about both. Essays are not presented in the order in which they were written, but are grouped by subject. Part I, "The Marginality of a Model Minority," focuses on European immigrants, especially Jews, and contains four essays: (1) "The Ghetto and Beyond: Reflections on Jewish Life in America"; (2) "Tensions and Trends: American Jews in the 1980s"; (3) "Country Cousins: Small-Town Jews and Their Neighbors"; and (4) "City Lights: The Children of Small-Town Jews." Part ii, "Red, White, Blue- and Black," addresses Black/White relations, and contains four essays: (5) "The Black Experience: Issues and Images"; (6) "Race and Education in New York: The Challenge Moves North"; (7) "Social Physics: The Resurgence of Ethnicity"; and (8) "Blacks and Jews: The Strained Alliance." Part iii, "On Ethnic Studies and Other Matters," discusses the sociology of racial and ethnic relations, and contains the final three essays: (9) "On the Subject of Race: Thinking, Writing, and Teaching about Racial and Ethnic Relations"; (10) "Problems in Conveying the Meaning of Ethnicity: The Insider/Outsider Debate"; and (11) "It's Almost 1984: Sociological Perspectives on American Society." Taken together, the essays demonstrate that sociology can be a lively mode of humanistic inquiry. (Sld)

The first edition of They and We appeared shortly after the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his memorable "I Have a Dream" speech. It was published just before the Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed by Congress. The book, read by tens of thousands, has been updated and expanded five times, each edition maintaining the original intention of the author to provide grounding in the sociological study of inter-group relations: examining prejudice, discrimination, minority status and other core concepts in straightforward, jargon-free prose, as well as tracking social, economic, political and legal developments. The new, 7th (50th anniversary) edition of They and We continues the tradition, depicting recent demographic changes and persisting patterns (such as the 'leapfrog' phenomenon, where, as in the past, many African-Americans are left behind as newer groups move in, up, and over). It also covers new developments, including the rise of Islamophobia in the wake of 9/11. An entirely new chapter compares perspectives in the United States with situations overseas, particularly with regard to nativist and nationalist movements and the rise of xenophobia in this society and in many others
