The FBI's RACON : racial conditions in the United States during World War II by United States Bureau of Investigation( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During World War II, an unprecedented wave of militant black protest and activism swept through the United States, setting the stage for the civil rights movements of the 1950s and 1960s. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover perceived this racial turmoil as a threat not only to wartime mobilization efforts but also to the preservation of a stable, segregated society, and ordered an extensive, nationwide investigation and surveillance of African Americans "to determine why particular Negroes or groups of Negroes or Negro organizations have evidenced sentiments for other 'dark races' (mainly Japanese) or by what forces they were influenced to adopt in certain instances un-American ideologies." The unstated objective of the inquiry, known by the secret code name RACON, was to neutralize the black challenge to the institutional grip of Jim Crow. This landmark volume publishes for the first time the FBI's Survey of Racial Conditions in the United States, an exhaustive report that grew out of the larger internal security investigation. Compiled from reports submitted by fifty-six field units in all areas of the country, the document chronicles in rich detail the experience of African Americans during World War II. A comprehensive introduction by Robert A. Hill situates the FBI report within a political, cultural, and literary context to provide a fuller understanding of this sparsely documented period in African-American history and its relationship to civil rights movements in the postwar era. Hill also explores the ways in which the investigation and surveillance of blacks during World War II illuminate the FBI's wartime evolution from an investigative body to a political counterintelligence agency

How Europe underdeveloped Africa by Walter Rodney( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book derives from a concern with the contemporary African situation. It delves into the past only because otherwise it would be impossible to understand how the present came into being and what the trends are for the near future. In the search for an understanding of what is now called underdevelopment in Africa, the limits of enquiry have had to be fixed as far apart as the fifteenth century, on the one hand and the end of the colonial period, on the other hand."-
