With such questions. The result has been a constant tension between the desire to welcome and the impulse to exclude. On one hand, America has taken in more immigrants than any other nation on earth. Yet, she has repeatedly given in to xenophobia and paranoia--and consequently excluded thousands fleeing Naziism or, more recently, trying to escape repression in Haiti. In the beginning the immigrants--African slaves excepted--were overwhelmingly British; and colonial

The end of anger : a new generation's take on race and rage by Ellis Cose( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his previous book, The Rage of a Privileged Class, the author offered a look at the simmering anger of the black middle class. Some sixteen years later, he has discovered this group is much less angry and even optimistic about its future, despite a flagging economy and a deeply divided body politic. In this new book he examines these new attitudes, the decline of black rage, as well as the demise of white guilt and the intergenerational shifts in how blacks and whites view and interact with each other. Weaving material from interviews and two large and ambitious surveys he offers a portrait of contemporary America, one that attempts to make sense of what a people do when the American dream, for some, is finally within reach, as one historical era ends and another begins. The book deals with race and class and is an exploration of how mores change from one generation to the next
The Darden dilemma : 12 black writers on justice, race, and conflicting loyalties by Ellis Cose( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After the O.J. Simpson trial, when Christopher Darden spoke out against those blacks who labeled him an "Uncle Tom" for trying to send a black man to jail, he brought to light the conflicting loyalties he felt as a black prosecutor. In The Darden Dilemma, edited and with an introduction by Ellis Cose, twelve of our finest writers, journalists, and legal professionals address the clashing allegiances of not only black prosecutors but also of black journalists, jurors, judges, police officers - even crime victims." "In an age when young black men are imprisoned at astounding rates, many doubt that our justice system is as fair and color-blind as it purports to be. The diverse contributors to The Darden Dilemma speak to those doubts as they address many of the essential issues of racial identity and the justice system: from Anita Hill, on the conflicts between racial solidarity and black female autonomy; to Stanley Crouch, on the "allegiances" of the predominantly black Simpson jury; to Elijah Anderson, on the precarious balance between being a "race man" or a "sellout." Much more than an examination of the significance of the O.J. Simpson trial, The Darden Dilemma is about functioning in a world in which black and white perceptions are often at odds - and whether it's possible to bring them closer together."--Jacket
A man's world : how real is male privilege--and how high is its price? by Ellis Cose( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are men really under siege in today's society? Ellis Cose reports on the discontent and confusion men are feeling as changing gender roles and expectations challenge the very core of male identity." "As Cose makes clear in A Man's World, white men are not the only males feeling vulnerable and off balance. Black men are considered a pathologically dangerous and endangered species. Latinos are told that their culture is irredeemably sexist. Whatever their class or ethnicity, men are being held to a very different standard - socially and sexually - than were their counterparts of a generation ago. Many fear that their rights and roles are shrinking before their eyes." "Using the combination of interviews, reportage and analysis that distinguished his critically acclaimed The Rage of a Privileged Class, Ellis Cose investigates this growing problem and puts it into context, providing men and women with a reasoned and informative guide to navigating an increasingly bewildering world."--Jacket
