Prejudice, politics, and the American dilemma ( Book )
5 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 528 libraries worldwide
It has been half a century since the publication of An American Dilemma, Gunnar Myrdal's seminal work on race in America. The cleavage between the politics of race a half century ago and now is that race has become a greater dilemma than ever before. The choice is no longer between right and wrong, between the values of the American creed and a variety of irrational and self-serving beliefs. The choice now must be made among competing values, including compassion, the freedom to achieve, tolerance, the right to be judged on one's individual merits, the reach of the state, and the autonomy of the family - in a word, between the very values that have made up the American creed. This book is an attempt to contribute to a fresh understanding of prejudice, politics, and the American dilemma. It presents new lines of questions by deliberately interweaving two perspectives, the first taking up issues of race focusing on whites, the second on blacks. But viewed from either perspective, the objective is to view anew the issues of race as they are now, not as they were a generation or so ago. The contributors are drawn from several disciplines in the social sciences, and include sociologists, psychometricians, social and personality psychologists, demographers, and political scientists of several persuasions. The range of subjects covered in the book is similarly wide, including the use of group stereotypes by college students, the behavioral assessment of tolerance, cohort trends in stereotypes of blacks, the use by blacks of stereotypes, explanations of inequality, the constraints on the reactions of blacks to middle-class American values, and the bases of American thinking about racial policies.

When ways of life collide : multiculturalism and its discontents in the Netherlands by Paul M Sniderman ( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 415 libraries worldwide
This book examines the policies of multiculturalism and the conflicts of values they generate between native Dutch and Muslim immigrant communities in the Netherlands. The authors adopt an empirical analytical approach in their treatment of the apparently vexing issue of multiculturalism in Dutch society, using the case of the Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh brutally murdered on a busy Amsterdam street in 2004 by a Dutch Moroccan offended by van Gogh's controversial film about Muslim suppression of women. The central thrust of their argument is that policies that were designed to protect the distinct way of life of the Muslims and promote tolerance are paradoxically breeding intolerance on both sides.
