The United States is on a path of increasing social conflict, accentuated class, and racial inequalities. Based on a belief that change can be brought about by citizen action, this volume argues that such action can be assisted by what the authors call "liberation sociology" - a tool for the increase of democratic participation in the production and implementation of knowledge.

"A compelling and challenging work."—Frances K. Pohl, author of Framing America "Berger is unafraid to tackle the major issues, and this book shows it."—Bruce Robertson, author of Marsden Hartley and Reckoning with Winslow Homer "Berger, writing on topics as diverse as landscape photography and early film, pushes into fascinating issues of gender, race, and class with sensitivity, insight, and largely jargon-free analysis. Having made a mark as a key Eakins scholar, he promises to achieve a similar feat in Sight Unseen, getting us to rethink traditional material in a new light."—John Wilmerding, Christopher Binyon Sarofim Professor of American Art, Princeton University

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (Institut fur Anglistik), course: Proseminar "Pop and Poetry," 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: The term paper at hand discusses different conceptions of racism as found in two of Bob Dylan's early songs, namely "Oxford Town" and "Only a Pawn in Their Game." It also contains in-depth analyses of the songs' lyrics., abstract: Few phenomena shook and transformed the American public in the 20th century like the one labelled "White racism" by American sociologist Joe R. Feagin in his 1995 book White racism: the basics. Since the 1890s, racial relations in the United States had become worse. During the early decades of the century, lynchings of black Americans, most of them occurring in the South, sometimes averaged 150 a year, with many cases going unreported.1 In addition to these terrible outbursts of violence, virtually all blacks had to deal with "everyday discrimination" when it came to employment, housing, education and other sectors of daily life. This racist segregation was sanctioned in most cases by legislation. Towards the middle of the century, the situation for Americans of African descent seemed to get better as a number of those so-called "Jim Crow laws," statutes aimed at segregating blacks and nicknamed after a stereotypical black character of 19th century minstrel shows, were repealed. As the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and other Civil Rights groups slowly made progress, racism more and more entered the consciousness of the general public. In the United States, Racism, especially "White Racism" directed toward blacks, had always been the subject of "literature proper," be it prosaic or poetic in nature (Harriet Beecher Stowe and Phyllis Wheatley come to mind as prime exponents of both divisions). It had also been treated extensively in (black) popular song, a"

It is communion Sunday at a mixed-race church. A black pastor and white head elder stand before the sanctuary as lay leaders pass out the host. An African-American woman sings a gospel song as a woman of Asian descent plays the piano. Then a black woman in the congregation throws her hands up and yells, over and over, "Thank you Lawd!" A few other African-Americans in the pews say "Amen," while white parishioners sit stone-faced. The befuddled white head elder reads aloud from the Bible, his soft voice drowned out by the shouts of praise. Even in this proudly interracial church, America's racial divide is a constant presence. In The Elusive Dream, Korie L. Edwards presents the surprising results of an in-depth study of interracial churches: they help perpetuate the very racial inequality they aim to abolish. To arrive at this conclusion, she combines a nuanced analysis of national survey data with an in-depth examination of one particular church. She shows that mixed-race churches adhere strongly to white norms. African Americans in multiracial settings adapt their behavior to make white congregants comfortable. Behavior that white worshipers perceive as out of bounds is felt by blacks as too limiting. Yet to make interracial churches work, blacks must adjust their behavior to accommodate the predilections of whites. They conform to white expectations in church just as they do elsewhere. Thorough, incisive, and surprising, The Elusive Dream raises provocative questions about the ongoing problem of race in the national culture.

Healing the Racial Divide retrieves the insights of Dr. Arthur Falls (1901-2000) for composing a renewed theology of Catholic racial justice. Falls was a black Catholic medical doctor who dedicated his life to healing rifts created by white supremacy and racism. He integrated theology, the social sciences, and personal experience to compose a salve that was capable of not only integrating neighborhoods but also eradicating the segregation that existed in Chicago hospitals. Falls was able to reframe the basic truths of the Christian faith in a way that unleashed their prophetic power. He referred to those Catholics who promoted segregation in Chicago as believers in the "mythical body of Christ," as opposed to the mystical body of Christ. The "mythical body of Christ" is a heretical doctrine that excludes African Americans and promotes the delusion that white people are the normative measure of the Catholic faith.

A fourth edition is now available. In the third edition of his highly acclaimed book, Bonilla-Silva continues to challenge color-blind thinking. He has now extended this challenge with a new chapter on Obama's election addressing the apparent miracle of a black man elected as the 44th President of the nation despite the fact that racial progress has stagnated since the 1980s and, in some areas, even regressed. In contrast to those who believe the election of President Obama is a watershed moment that signifies the beginning of a post-racial era in America, he suggests this development embodies the racial trends of the last 40 years including two he has addressed in this book: the rise of color-blind racism as the dominant racial ideology and the emergence of an apparently more flexible racial stratification system he characterizes as Latin America-like. Some material from previous editions, including 'Answers to Questions from Concerned Readers, ' 'What is to Be Done, ' and an Appendix detailing interview questions, is now available on the Rowman & Littlefield website through the Teaching/Learning Resources link.

Two-Faced Racismexamines and explains the racial attitudes and behaviours exhibited by whites in private settings. While there are many books that deal with public attitudes, behaviours, and incidences concerning race and racism (frontstage), there are few studies on the attitudes whites display among friends, family, and other whites in private settings (backstage). The core of this book draws upon 626 journals of racial events kept by white college students at& twenty-eight colleges in the United States. The book seeks to comprehend how whites think in racial terms by analyzing their reported racial events.
