Dictionary of race and ethnic relations by Ellis Cashmore( Book )

82 editions published between 1984 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 1,888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Issues of ethnicity and racial relations are almost universally seen as one of the prime motivating forces behind social conflict and change. The often volatile and complex nature of racial interaction resonates through all aspects of modern society. Even social issues which appear to have little or no connection to race often become entangled with ethnic friction to create far more complex problems. Race is also used as a powerful weapon by individuals and political organizations to further their own objectives. It is these issues and problems that the Dictionary of Race and Ethnic Relations addresses. Since the 1988 publication of the second edition of this acclaimed reference book there have been enormous changes in the area of race and ethnic relations throughout the world. In a comprehensive range of alphabetically arranged entries which cover legal concerns, historical developments, and important figures and concepts the Dictionary of Race and Ethnic Relations deals with these changes through in-depth articles which both define and analyze the terms. Developments in South Africa, the 1992 riots in Los Angeles, and the Clarence Thomas hearings are just a few of the broad range of up-to-date subjects covered. In addition, each entry provides a list of cross-references and further reading which make the book a valuable reference tool as well as a teaching aid

Martin Scorsese's America by Ellis Cashmore( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over four decades, Martin Scorsese has been the chronicler of an obsessive society, where material possessions and physical comfort are valued, where the pursuit of individual improvement is rewarded and where male prerogative is respected and preserved." "Scorsese has often described his films as sociology and he has a point: his storytelling condenses complex information into comprehensible narratives about society. In this sense, he has been a guide through a dark world of nineteenth century crypto-fascism to a fetishistic twentieth century in which goods, fame, money and power are held to have magical power." "Author of Tyson: Nurture of the Beast and Beckham, Ellis Cashmore turns his attention to arguably the most influential living film-maker to explore how Scorsese envisions America. Greed, manhood, the city and romantic love feature on Scorsese's landscape of secular materialism. They are among the themes Cashmore argues have driven and inform Scorsese's work. This is America, as seen through the eyes of Martin Scorsese and it is a deeply unpleasant place." "Cashmore's book discloses how, collectively, Scorsese's films present an image of America. It's an image assembled from the perspectives of obsessive people, whether burned-out paramedics, compulsive entrepreneurs, tortured lovers, or celebrity-fixated comedians. It's collected from pool halls, taxicabs, boxing rings and jazz clubs. It's an image that's specific, yet ubiquitous. It is Martin Scorsese's America."--Jacket
