Race and the social sciences by I Katz( Book )

13 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this collection of essays is on the formulation of research goals and strategies needed for practical solutions to improve race relations. Herbert H. Hyman writes on the effect of Negro social change on white attitudes about the Negro. Thomas F. Pettigrew defines research priorities for desegregation in the public schools. A broad "systems theory" model for studying race politics is presented by Donald R. Matthews. Karl E. Taeuber looks to demographic information which would be useful in breaking the "vicious cycle of Negro disabilities." Charles C. Killingsworth presents ways of investigating causes of and remedies for Negro unemployment, and includes analyses of the labor market. James C. Coleman formulates an overarching framework for determining theories and hypotheses about social change. In the last chapter the co-editors review the essays, pointing out common themes and elaborating on important issues and policy implications not clearly developed elsewhere. (Kg)
Women, politics, and change( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and Italian and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women, Politics, and Change, a compendium of twenty-three original essays by social historians, political scientists, sociologists, psychologists, and anthropologists, examines the political history of American women over the past one hundred years. Taking a broad view of politics, the contributors address voluntarism and collective action, women's entry into party politics through suffrage and temperance groups, the role of nonpartisan organizations and pressure politics, and the politicization of gender. Each chapter provides a telling example of how American women have behaved politically throughout the twentieth century, both in the two great waves of feminist activism and in less highly mobilized periods."--Publisher's description
Black consciousness, identity, and achievement : a study of students in historically Black colleges by Patricia Gurin( Book )

14 editions published between 1975 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the result of a series of studies conducted in several historically black colleges from 1964 to 1970. With a focus that changed from a study of activists to a study of students in an institutional context, the book is considered to aim at revealing and clarifying the concerns and dilemmas of black students during an uneasy period when many questions are being raised about the relevance of education. A first purpose of the book is to examine the relationship between relevant identity goals and the traditional academic goals of higher education. A second purpose is to present data gathered from questionnaires and interviews with several thousand black students that either counter common expectations or fill the void of information about black students. Separated into three parts, major topics addressed include individual achievement, collective achievement, and how the two are polarized, independent, or integrated. Data presented are said to document the extraordinary commitment of black students and their families to education. (Author/AM)
Hope and independence : Blacks' response to electoral and party politics by Patricia Gurin( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past fifteen years, a New Black Politics has swept black candidates into office and registered black voters in numbers unimaginable since the days of Reconstruction. Based on interviews with a representative sample of nearly 1,000 voting-age black Americans, Hope and Independence explores blacks' attitudes toward electoral and party politics and toward Jesse Jackson's first presidential bid. Viewed in the light of black political history, the survey reveals enduring themes of hope (for eventual inclusion in traditional politics, despite repeated disappointments) and independence (a strategy of operating outside conventional political institutions in order to achieve incorporation). The authors describe a black electorate that is less alienated than many have suggested. Blacks are more politically engaged than whites with comparable levels of education. And despite growing economic inequality in the black community, the authors find no serious class-based political cleavage. Underlying the widespread support for Jackson among blacks, a distinction emerges between "common fate" solidarity, which is pro-black, committed to internal criticism of the Democratic party, and conscious of commonality with other disadvantaged groups, and "exclusivist" solidarity, which is pro-black but also hostile to whites and less empathetic to other minorities. This second, more divisive type of solidarity expresses itself in the desire for a separate black party or a vote black strategy—but its proponents constitute a small minority of the black electorate and show surprisingly hopeful attitudes toward the Democratic party. Hope and Independence will be welcomed by readers concerned with opinion research, the sociology of race, and the psychology of group consciousness. By probing the attitudes of individual blacks in the context of a watershed campaign, this book also makes a vital contribution to our grasp of current electoral politics

Measuring race and ethnicity by Larry E Davis( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Racial and ethnic issues stand at the core of social, political, and economic concerns in an increasingly diverse America. Accordingly, how individuals from the various ethnic groups regard themselves--and others--is a salient focus of research studies across the disciplines. Measuring Race and Ethnicity gathers psychological measures of common phenomena such as racial identity, acculturation, and intra- and intergroup relations enabling researchers to compare concepts across groups and better evaluate differences and disparities. Most of the instruments date from the 1990s and later, while a number of still-useful earlier scales are included. Taken together, these tools strengthen a wide evidence base, and point to areas where new scales are warranted. Included in this volume: -Fourteen measures for African Americans, such as the Rejection Sensitivity Race Questionnaire and the Cultural Mistrust Inventory -Nine Caucasian-specific instruments, including the Race and Politics Survey and the Being White in America Scale -Nineteen acculturation scales for Latinos, some specific to Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Chicanos -Eight Asian/Pacific Islander measures, including the Race-Related Stressor Scale and the Intergenerational Congruence in Immigrant Families Scale. -The Native American Acculturation Scale -Twenty-two generic measures, including the Experience of Discrimination Scale and the Scale of Ethnocultural Empathy Researchers in psychology, social work, and public health examining cultural and race-related topics will find an immediately relevant source of valid and reliable scales in Measuring Race and Ethnicity
Motivation and aspiration in the Negro college by Patricia Gurin( Book )

7 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The factors which influence career choices and aspirations of students attending selected negro colleges in the south were studied. Of major concern were the ways which the students' social and family backgrounds, motivational characteristics, involvements in civil rights, and educational experiences encourage or constrain alternatives in making choices about their futures. The institutions were selected for providing wide diversities in public-private sponsorship, academic status, and amount of constraint on civil rights activities. Questionnaires were administered to 4,000 students at 10 institutions. In addition, interviews were conducted with 600 students to obtain more intensive information. Data collected were on specific measures of occupational aspiration, class background, family influence, motivation, and institutional characteristics. The results indicated that (1) elementary and secondary teaching careers were the predominant professional choice, (2) high achievement orientation and sense of personal control were positively related to aspirations for jobs of prestige, (3) realistic aspirants (ability matched equally with level of performance) were more likely than under- or over-aspirants to attribute the failure of other negroes to problems of racial discrimination, and (4) overall differences existed among the 10 schools in degrees of student aspiration. Implications were presented for education, motivational dynamics (the role of expectancies and value-motive factors), personal control development, educational programs, success feedback, programed materials, grades and honors distribution, and school, teacher, and student roles.

Education, Labor Market Experiences, and Current Expectancies of Black and White Men and Women. Final Report by Patricia Gurin( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research reported here examines the role of psychological expectancies as labor market supply characteristics of black and white men and women. Secondary analyses are carried out on data provided by the Survey Research Center 1972 national probability sample of adults 18 years and older drawn for the presidential election study. The report focuses on race and sex differences in previous labor market experiences, the relationship of these past experiences to current employment expectancies and general feelings of efficacy, and finally the effects of both market experiences and expectancies on current behavior. Psychological expectancies are emphasized as the elements of motivation that should have unusual significance for understanding the dynamics of race and sex discrimination in the labor market. There are five major chapters. Chapter 1 describes the sample and measures used in the analyses reported here. Chapter 2 describes the market experiences, perception of obstacles, and current expectancies of black and white men and women. Chapter 3 examines the interrelationships of these variables with particular focus on the effects of years of schooling and previous market experiences on current expectancies. Chapter 4 presents a general causal model in which expectancies are viewed as intervening influences between current market outcomes and variables at two earlier stages, original educational attainment at stage one and subsequent market experience at stage two. Three types of current market outcomes are analyzed with application of the model to the job status of blacks and whites, to women's and men's search behavior, and to the work intentions of white housewives. Chapter 5, on implications for counseling and future research, describes the types of expectancy and experience measures and the design that will be needed to extend this line of interdisciplinary labor market research.

Two-Way Socialization Processes in the Classroom. Final Report by Patricia Gurin( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted in thirty-four sixth grade classrooms in order to examine (1) the effect of teacher behavior on pupil achievement and feelings of control; (2) how pupil characteristics affect teachers' differential behaviors toward different pupils; (3) how the effect of teachers' behaviors on pupils varies according to pupil characteristics; and (4) how changes in pupils' attitudes and expectancies mediate their changes in academic performance. Included in this report are the results of pupil achievement and personality tests (administered three times during the school year) and data from coded observations of teacher pupil interaction. The sample of pupils for which data are analyzed included black and white children of both sexes and different levels of internal and external control. Results are presented in separate chapters on teacher judgments of children, teacher behaviors, the relationship between teacher judgment and behavior, and teacher locus of control. This study also highlights ways that teacher behaviors and pupil characteristics may interact to hinder rather than to facilitate a pupil's learning. (Author/GC)
The Compelling Need for Diversity in Higher Education by Thomas Sugrue( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Center for Individual Rights (cir) represented three white applicants who brought the two lawsuits, "Gratz, et al., V Bollinger, et al., No. 97-75231 (E.D. Mich.)" and "Grutter, et al. V. Bollinger, et al., No. 97-75928 (E.D. Mich.)," against the University of Michigan. These lawsuits challenge as unlawful the University of Michigan's policy of considering race as one of many factors in the process for admissions to the College of Literature, Science and the Arts, and the Law School. The University of Michigan brought together a team of leading scholars to serve as its experts in these cases to establish the basis for the University's argument that there is a compelling need for diversity in higher education. Thomas Sugrue of the University of Pennsylvania describes the important role that race continues to play in modern American society. Eric Foner of Columbia University (New York) describes the history of race relations through the lens of the African-American experience and Albert Camarillo of Stanford University (California) explains that Hispanic Americans have been largely marginalized and separated from mainstream American society. Patricia Gurin of the University of Michigan presents evidence showing that students educated in diverse classrooms learn to think in more complex ways. William Bowen, president of the Mellon Foundation (Pennsylvania), and Derek Bok, former president of Harvard University (Massachusetts), cite their recent book, "The Shape of the River," in which they find that minorities admitted to the nation's most selective schools have made significant achievements, both in school and afterwards and have contributed in important ways to the education of those around them. Claude Steele at Stanford University notes the limited usefulness of standardized tests in the admissions process, citing research that finds that prevailing stereotypes about minorities' academic capabilities artificially depress minority students' test scores. Specifically addressing the law school admissions process, Kent Syverud of Vanderbilt University Law School (Tennessee) shows how a diverse law school class provides a more vibrant and lively opportunity for learning than could otherwise be achieved; Robert Webster, a former judge and former president of the Michigan State Bar Association, describes the importance of diversity to the practice of law.

Labor Market Experiences and Expectancies by Patricia Gurin( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports on a study which measured labor market experience and its possible effects on workers' psychological expectancies. Past efforts that employed black and white men and women had made to improve their market situations are described, as well as attributions they gave for their experiences. Work or educational changes attempted by women, and their encountering of different problems from those reported by white men, are discussed. Race and sex differences in expectancies are reported. Results that illuminate some issues of relevance for women are examined. These concern the expectancy implications of their past market experiences, and the role of these experiences in accounting for their expectancy disadvantage relative to white men. The importance of psychological expectancies and self concept to job achievement are stresssed. (Author/MC)
