Paul Robeson, Jr. speaks to America by Paul Robeson( Book )

According to Paul Robeson, Jr., the controversy about multiculturalism is in fact a profound ideological struggle over the values of our national culture. More than a question of the politics of race and gender, the debate is about whether melting-pot culture, the foundation of American life, should be replaced by a mosaic culture incorporating the values of the diverse groups that make up America's population. Robeson contends that the melting pot image has not worked for Blacks, who are excluded by definition from the blended culture of the ethnic American dream. Basing his argument in part on a rejection of the idea of radical individualism, the author suggests that the absence of a concept of group rights in American history places Blacks at a disadvantage. Radical individualism, as a philosophy, rejects the premise of civil rights for groups, which in modern parlance is termed "group tyranny." Robeson attacks mainstream American culture itself in a series of interrelated essays on his father (Paul Robeson), Clarence Thomas, liberals and conservatives, cultural diversity in the workplace, gender and minorities, Blacks and Jews, the Black middle class, and the university. What is needed, Robeson contends, is a new understanding of the nature of a culture of diversity - one that also celebrates Blacks, women, and other presently marginalized groups as visible and distinct actors

Spectral, spatial, and temporal properties of lasers by A. M Ratner( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the decade there were many developments in laser research and numerous applications of the laser were made in fields of science and engineering. Many theoretical and experimental ad vances were made in the Soviet Union; often they paralleled those taking place in the United States and elsewhere but started from different points, proceeded along different paths, and yielded dif ferent insights into the physical processes taking place in the la ser. The present book offers a unified theory of lasers by which the operating characteristics of the laser are described and re lated to the details of the radiation emitted. Extensive emenda tions to the original, Soviet edition were supplied by the author and incorporated into the text, and references to the English literature were added to the translation to permit the reader to readily ex plore topics in greater detail. Since the Soviet edition's appearance in 1968 one very impor tant area has developed-that of mode locking and picosecond pulse production. This area is so important that no comprehensive work on the laser published in 1972 could neglect it. Accordingly, Chap ter XII was added to round off the treatment. I am indebted to my colleague, Professor A.J. Carruthers of the University of Min nesota for many illuminating discussions on mode locking
