We are all multiculturalists now by Nathan Glazer( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 1,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The melting pot no longer defines us. Where not very long ago we sought assimilation, we now pursue multiculturalism. Nowhere has this transformation been more evident than in the public schools, where a traditional Eurocentric curriculum has yielded to diversity - and, often, to confrontation and confusion. In a book that brings clarity and reason to this highly charged issue, Nathan Glazer explores these sweeping changes. He offers an incisive account of why we all - advocates and skeptics alike - have become multiculturalists, and what this means for national unity, civil society, and the education of our youth. Focusing particularly on the impact in public schools, Glazer dissects the four issues uppermost in the minds of people on both sides of the multicultural fence: Whose "truth" do we recognize in the curriculum? Will an emphasis on ethnic roots undermine or strengthen our national unity in the face of international disorder? Will attention to social injustice, past and present, increase or decrease civil disharmony and strife? Does a multicultural curriculum enhance learning, by engaging students' interest and by raising students' self-esteem, or does it teach irrelevance at best and fantasy at worst? Glazer argues cogently that multiculturalism arose from the failure of mainstream society to assimilate African Americans; anger and frustration at their continuing separation gave black Americans the impetus for rejecting traditions that excluded them. But, willingly or not, we are all multiculturalists now, Glazer asserts, and his book gives us the clearest picture yet of what there is to know, to fear, and to ask of ourselves about this new identity

The Urban predicament by William Gorham( Book )

9 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of contributors bring together much of what is known about some of New York City's major problems. In an "introduction and overview" chapter, the editors of the book take a look at chapters that follow in the context of recent attempts by the Federal government to influence city conditions. A "finance" chapter presents a comprehensive analysis of the circumstances through which most of the largest cities got into their fiscal bind and suggests what each level of government can do to ease the bind. A "housing" chapter surveys a number of past and current aspects of housing, suggesting how all of them relate to each other in the operation of the housing market. A "crime" chapter focuses on the nearer-term methods of reducing street crime, particularly robbery. Also presented is an analysis of the effect that a higher arrest and incapacitation might have on the crime rate. The bulk of an "education" chapter is devoted to an analysis of desegregation in the public schools since 1968. a "transportation" chapter covers most of the problems on the passenger transportation scene.

The lonely crowd : a study of the changing American character by David Riesman( Book )

185 editions published between 1900 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Lonely Crowd is considered by many to be the most influential book of the twentieth century. Its now-classic analysis of the "new middle class" in terms of inner-directed and other-directed social character opened exciting new dimensions in our understanding of the psychological, political, and economic problems that confront the individual in contemporary American society. The 1969 abridged and revised edition of the book is now reissued with a new foreword by Todd Gitlin that explains why the book is still relevant to our own era."--Jacket

From a cause to a style : modernist architecture's encounter with the American city by Nathan Glazer( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modernism in architecture and urban design has failed the American city. This is the decisive conclusion that renowned public intellectual Nathan Glazer has drawn from two decades of writing and thinking about what this architectural movement will bequeath to future generations. In From a Cause to a Style, he proclaims his disappointment with modernism and its impact on the American city. Writing in the tradition of legendary American architectural critics Lewis Mumford and Jane Jacobs, Glazer contends that modernism, this new urban form that signaled not just a radical revolution in style but a social ambition to enhance the conditions under which ordinary people lived, has fallen short on all counts. The articles and essays collected here--some never published before, all updated--reflect his ideas on subjects ranging from the livable city and public housing to building design, public memorials, and the uses of public space. Glazer, an undisputed giant among public intellectuals, is perhaps best known for his writings on ethnicity and social policy, where the unflinching honesty and independence of thought that he brought to bear on tough social questions has earned him respect from both the Left and the Right. Here, he challenges us to face some difficult truths about the public places that, for better or worse, define who we are as a society."--Publisher's description
