Changing woman : a history of racial ethnic women in modern America by Karen Anderson( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While great strides have been made in documenting the historical experiences and actions of middle-class white women in United States, scholarship on racial ethnic women has begun to appear only in recent years as women of color and other scholars have broadened the base of inquiry in women's history. Without a window into the lives of racial ethnic women our understanding of the meanings and dynamics of various forms of social inequality will be woefully inadequate. Now, in this illuminating volume, Karen Anderson offers the first book to examine the lives of women from three important ethnic groups in the United States - Native American, Mexican American, and African American women - revealing the specificities and commonalities of their experiences. Changing Woman provides the first comparative history of women from these racial ethnic groups, explaining changes in the sources and nature of the oppressions in their lives and tracing their progress over time

Little Rock : race and resistance at Central High School by Karen Anderson( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the Supreme Court struck down racial segregation in public schools, Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus called up the National Guard to surround Little Rock Central High School, preventing black students from going in. On September 25, 1957, nine black students, escorted by federal troops, gained entrance. With grace and depth, Little Rock provides fresh perspectives on the individuals, especially the activists and policymakers, involved in these dramatic events. Looking at a wide variety of evidence and sources, Karen Anderson examines American racial politics in relation to changes in youth culture, sexuality, gender relations, and economics, and she locates the conflicts of Little Rock within the larger political and historical context. Anderson considers how white groups at the time, including middle class women and the working class, shaped American race and class relations. She documents white women's political mobilizations and, exploring political resentments, sexual fears, and religious affiliations, illuminates the reasons behind segregationists' missteps and blunders. Anderson explains how the business elite in Little Rock retained power in the face of opposition, and identifies the moral failures of business leaders and moderates who sought the appearance of federal compliance rather than actual racial justice, leaving behind a legacy of white flight, poor urban schools, and institutional racism
