“Race” and Racism - The Development of Modern Racism in America | R. Perry | Palgrave MacmillanIt provided the foundation for the colonization of Native land, the enslavement of American Indians and Africans, and a common identity among socially unequal and ethnically diverse Europeans. Longstanding ideas and prejudices merged with aims to control land and labor, a dynamic reinforced by ongoing observation and theorization of non-European peoples. Rather, it was a heterogeneous compound of physical, intellectual, and moral characteristics passed on from one generation to another. Drawing upon the frameworks of scripture, natural and moral philosophy, and natural history, scholars endlessly debated whether different races shared a common ancestry, whether traits were fixed or susceptible to environmentally produced change, and whether languages or the body provided the best means to trace descent. Racial theorization boomed in the U. Keywords: race , language , colonialism , slavery , African Americans , Indians , immigration.

B erkeley : U niversity of C alifornia P ress , Situated between two of the most significant immigration policies of the twentieth century—the Johnson-Reed Act and the Hart-Celler Act—Molina explores how this immigration regime influenced and shaped racial categories and concepts of citizenship through laws and practices, as well as the rhetoric and racial scripts used in debates about immigration and race more broadly. Secondly, and central to the overall goal of the book, Molina argues that race and racism were and continue to be relationally constructed. As such, throughout the monograph she highlights the linkages of racialization across communities and time. How Race is Made in America is arranged chronologically, but is also thematically driven.

With these words, President Clinton contributed to Long Island University's three-day celebration of that momentous event in American history when Robinson became the first African American to play major league baseball. This new book includes presentations from that celebration, especially chosen for their fresh perspectives and illuminating insights. A heady mix of journalism, scholarship, and memory offers a presentation that far transcends the retelling of just another sports story. Readers get a true sense of the social conditions prior to Robinson's arrival in the major leagues and the ripple effect his breakthrough had on the nation. Anecdotes enliven the story and offer more than the usual "larger than life" portrait of Robinson. A melange of contributors from the sports world, academia, and journalism, some of Robinson's contemporaries, Dodger fans, and historians of the era, all sharing a passion for baseball, reflect on issues of sports, race, and the dramatic transformation of the American social and political scene in the last fifty years.
