Race : the power of an illusion by Carl Rakosi( Visual )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series challenges one of our most fundamental beliefs: that humans come divided into a few distinct biological groups, telling an eye-opening tale of how what we assume to be normal, commonsense, even scientific, is actually shaped by our history, social institutions and cultural beliefs. Episode one explores how recent scientific discoveries have toppled the concept of biological race. Episode two questions the belief that race has always been with us. It traces the race concept to the European conquest of the Americas. Episode three focuses on how our institutions shape and create race

Adult illiteracy in the United States : a report to the Ford Foundation by Carman St. John Hunter( Book )

7 editions published between 1979 and 1985 in English and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The result of a study on adult literacy undertaken by World Education, this book places the educational problem of adult literacy into the larger context of a changing society and offers a fresh perspective and a new way of thinking about the phenomenon. After defining functional literacy as the possession of skills perceived by particular persons as necessary to fulfill their own objectives, the book presents data on which and how many adults need help and characterizes these adults in ways designed to foster a deeper understanding of them. It next explores a wide range of efforts, both formal and informal, that have been undertaken to advance literacy and briefly discusses their effectiveness. Concentrating on the educational needs of the most disadvantaged poor, it recommends a national educational policy that would seek out and give support to community-based initiatives. The book concludes with a call for a long-range strategy that would not only involve programs for victims of social ills but that would enable national leaders and citizens at every level to address questions of social direction. Appendixes contain a summary of the recommendations and an extensive annotated bibliography. (Fl)

Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steadily increasing immigration to California over the past thirty years has profoundly affected the state. Some observers of these changes see the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. Others see California as the symbol of a major backlash against immigrants and immigration. How has California benefited from immigration? What impact have immigrants had on the state's job market? How have they affected the demand for federal and state services? What has been their education and economic progress since their arrival? This book summarizes the findings of a comprehensive study fully documented in Immigration in a Changing Economy: California's Experience, by Kevin F. McCarthy and Georges Vernez. Using a question-and-answer framework, it discusses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, drawing lessons for California's future as well as for other states and the nation
