Jackie Robinson : an intimate portrait by Rachel Robinson( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the spring of 1947, Jackie Robinson played his first game with the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking down baseball's decades-old color line and changing the face of the game forever. Now, in this intimate portrait, Robinson's widow, Rachel, tells her husband's story - and that of her life with him - from her unique perspective. But the tale of Jackie Robinson doesn't begin and end with baseball. It includes family, friends, and - after retirement - the business world and the civil rights movement. Confronted by challenges at every turn, together the Robinsons struggled to live to the fullest in every way. Rachel Robinson describes the trials the family faced as carefully as she relates her husband's thrilling triumphs on the diamond. With a compelling foreword by noted historian Roger Wilkins and epilogues by the Robinsons' two living children, Jackie Robinson: An Intimate Portrait presents a new and revealing picture of a man who is a hero to so many - black and white, old and young, male and female
Quiet riots : race and poverty in the United States by Fred R Harris( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book grew out of the national conference "The Kerner Commission: Twenty Years Later." The Kerner Commission found in its 1968 Report that America was moving toward two separate and unequal societies, divided along racial lines, and that major efforts to combat poverty, unemployment, and racism were mandated. The essays in this book examine the persistence of racial and economic inequalities in American society. The book is divided into four parts. Part I, "The Kerner Reports of 1968," includes the following chapters: (1) "The 1967 Riots and the Kerner Commission" (Fred R. Harris); and (2) "The Kerner Report: a Journalist's View" (John Herbers). Part ii, "Today's Worsened Poverty," includes the following chapters: (3) "Poverty Is Still With Us--and Worse" (David Hamilton); and (4) "Blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, and Poverty--and What Worked" (Gary D. Sandefur). Part iii, "a Growing Urban Underclass," includes the following chapters: (5) "The Persistence of Urban Poverty" (Terry K. Adams and others); (6) "Separate Societies: Have the Kerner Warnings Come True?" (Gary Orfield); and (7) "The Ghetto Underclass and the Changing Structure of Urban Poverty" (William Julius Wilson and others). Part iv, "Conclusions and Recommendations," includes the following chapters: (8) "Thomas Jefferson, the Kerner Commission, and the Retreat of Folly" (Lynn A. Curtis); and (9) "Race and Poverty in the United States--and What Should Be Done," the report of the 1988 Commission on the States. Notes and sources, information on the contributors, and an index are appended. The book includes statistical information on 19 tables and five figures. (Af)

Credential changes and education earnings premia in Australia by Michael Coelli( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We find that post-school education earnings premia have remained strikingly stable over the 1981 to 2003-04 period in Australia. This stability is in sharp contrast to the rising college premium observed in the US. The observed stability in Australia may in part be due to changes in the credentials earned by individuals entering certain professional occupations during the 1980s and early 1990s, particularly for females. We provide an estimate of the potential effect of within-occupation credential changes on estimates of education earnings premia in Australia over time. Our focus is on credential changes within the nursing and teaching professions, which have moved from predominately certificate and diploma qualifications to university bachelor's degree or higher as the standard qualification
