Japanese Americans : the formation and transformations of an ethnic group by Paul R Spickard( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1855, nearly half a million Japanese immigrants have settled in the United States, and today more than twice that number claim Japanese ancestry. While these immigrants worked hard, established networks, and repeatedly distinguished themselves as entrepreneurs, they also encountered harsh discrimination. Nowhere was this more evident than on the West Coast during World War II, when virtually the entire population of Japanese Americans was forced into internment camps solely on the basis of ethnicity."
Almost all aliens : immigration, race, and colonialism in American history and identity by Paul R Spickard( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Almost All Aliens is a complete reinterpretation of the shape and meaning of immigration in the history of the United States. It leaves the traditional Ellis Island model of immigrant assimilation as it embraces the multicultural reality of immigration that has always existed in the United States. Almost All Aliens operates from the point of view of ethnic studies as much as history and shows that migration to America has always been linked to colonialism, slavery, and racial oppression."--Publishers description
Is lighter better? : skin-tone discrimination among Asian Americans by Joanne L Rondilla( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colorism is defined as ""discriminatory treatment of individuals falling within the same 'racial' group on the basis of skin color."" That is, some people, particularly women, are treated better or worse on account of the color of their skin relative to other people who share their same racial category. Colorism affects Asian Americans from many different backgrounds and who live in all different parts of the United States. Is Lighter Better? discusses this often-overlooked topic. Rondilla and Spickard ask important questions like: what are the colorism issues that operate in Asian Amer

Race and nation : ethnic systems in the modern world by Paul R Spickard( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Race and Nation is the first book to compare the racial and ethnic systems that have developed around the world. It is the creation of nineteen scholars who are experts on locations as far-flung as China, Jamaica, Eritrea, Brazil, Germany, Punjab, and South Africa. The contributing historians, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, and scholars of literary and cultural studies have engaged in an ongoing conversation, honing a common set of questions that dig to the heart of racial and ethnic groups and systems. Guided by those questions, they have created the first book that explores the similarities, differences, and the relationships among the ways that race and ethnicity have worked in the modern world. In so doing they have created a model for how to write world history that is detailed in its expertise, yet also manages broad comparisons."--Published description

Asian and Pacific Islander Americans constitute the fastest-growing racial group in the United States. They are also one of the most religiously diverse.

The contributors to this volume provide an essential inter-disciplinary resource for the study of Asian and Pacific Islander American religion
A global history of Christians : how everyday believers experienced their world by Paul R Spickard( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though the authors do treat major events, leaders, and institutions, they emphasize the lives of ordinary Christians. And they probe the history of the church not only in Western civilization but also in its worldwide manifestation." "This multicultural balance means expanded discussion of theologies on the fringe of accepted orthodoxy - ideas that have influenced the Christian church throughout the ages. Other features include analyses of key developments in society and economics, descriptions of native cultures as more than objects of missions, and depictions of everyday life in various Christian communities."--BOOK JACKET
Affect and power : essays on sex, slavery, race, and religion in appreciation of Winthrop D. Jordan by David J Libby( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1968, Winthrop D. Jordan published his work White Over Black: American Attitudes Toward the Negro, 1550-1812 and opened up new avenues for thinking about sex, slavery, race, and religion in American culture. Over the course of a forty-year career at the University of California and the University of Mississippi, he continued to write about these issues and to train others to think in new ways about interactions of race, gender, faith, and power." "Written by former students of Jordan, these essays are a tribute to the career of one of America's great thinkers and perhaps the most influential American historian of his generation. The book visits historical locales from Puritan New England and French Louisiana to nineteenth-century New York and Mississippi, all the way to Harlem swing clubs and college campuses in the twentieth century. In the process, authors listen to the voies of abolitionists and white supremacists, preachers and politicos, white farm women and black sorority sisters, slaves and jazz musicians."--Jacket
Race and immigration in the United States : new histories( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Race and Immigration in the United States is a collection of the very best of the new generation of scholarship in the field of immigration history. The traditional Ellis Island model of immigrant assimilation is no longer adequate to understand American history. A more subtle model is needed--one which does not exclude peoples of color from view, nor treat the experiences of European immigrants as a template for the experiences of non-White migrants. In this important collection, Paul Spickard draws together essays that illuminate the crucial differences that race makes in the study of American history. Bringing the insight of ethnic studies scholarship into the history of immigration, Race and Immigration in the United States is an essential collection for anyone studying ethnicity and immigration in American history

Multiple identities : migrants, ethnicity, and membership by Paul R Spickard( Book )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, Europeans have engaged in sharp debates about migrants and minority groups as social problems. The discussions usually neglect who these people are, how they live their lives, and how they identify themselves. Multiple Identities describes how migrants and minorities of all age groups experience their lives and manage complex, often multiple, identities, which alter with time and changing circumstances. The contributors consider minorities who have received a lot of attention, such as Turkish Germans, and some who have received little, such as Kashubians and Tartars in Poland and Chinese in Switzerland. They also examine international adoption and cross-cultural relationships and discuss some models for multicultural success."--Publisher's description

The film features the experiences, perspectives, and performances of American comedians of more than one racial ancestry"--Container
