Iron cages : race and culture in nineteenth-century America by Ronald T Takaki( Book )

31 editions published between 1979 and 2000 in English and held by 1,822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now in a new edition, Iron Cages provides a unique comparative analysis of white American attitudes toward Asians, blacks, Mexicans, and Native Americans in the 19th century. This pathbreaking work offers a cohesive study of the foundations of race and culture in America. In a new epilogue, Takaki argues that the social health of the United States rests largely on the ability of Americans of all races and cultures to build on an established and positive legacy of cross-cultural cooperation and understanding in the coming 21st century. Observing that by 2050 all Americans will be minorities, Takaki urges us to ask ourselves: Will America fulfill the promise of equality or will America retreat into its "iron cages" and resist diversity, allowing racial conflicts to divide and possibly even destroy America as a nation? Incisive and provocative, Iron Cages is an essential resource for students of ethnic history and important reading for anyone interested in the history of race relations in America
Hiroshima : why America dropped the atomic bomb by Ronald T Takaki( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his probing new study, prizewinning historian Ronald Takaki explores these factors and more. He considers the cultural context of race - the ways in which stereotypes of the Japanese influenced public opinion and policymakers - and also probes the human dimension. Relying on top secret military reports, diaries, and personal letters, Takaki relates international policies to the individuals involved: Los Alamos director J. Robert Oppenheimer, Secretary of State James Byrnes, Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson, and others ... but above all, Harry Truman
Double victory : a multicultural history of America in World War II by Ronald T Takaki( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Until now, the story of America's role in World War II has been presented primarily through the lives of powerful policymakers and generals, or through the heroism of American soldiers of predominantly European ancestry. Historian Ronald Takaki's multicultural history offers a different perspective. In Double Victory, history is told through the lives of ordinary, ethnically diverse Americans - a Tuskegee pilot wanting to fly and fight for freedom, a Navajo code talker using his native language to transmit battle messages, a Mexican-American woman riveting B-29 bombers in an airplane factory, a Japanese American feeling betrayed by his own government, and a Jewish-American soldier at Buchenwald pressing human ashes into his palm so that he would never forget what he had seen." "What emerges from Takaki's study is the affirming story of how minorities fought for a "double victory" against fascism abroad and prejudice at home."--Jacket

Following an introduction by the editor, the essays are presented in five categories, each of which is preceded by an introduction: "Patterns," which deals with the historical configurations of race and ethnicity; "Culture," which is concerned with the realm of ideology and perceptions; " Class," which considers the economic and material basis of social divisions; "Gender," which examines the experiences of women and how they have intersected with race and class; and "Prospects," which discusses public policies and strategies for social change. The book concludes with a bibliography. (Dm)
