Race : the power of an illusion by Llewellyn Smith( visu )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 1,390 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 )
6 editions published between 1979 and 1985 in English and held by 1,058 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)

Faculty bargaining : change and conflict : a report prepared for the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education and the Ford Foundation by Joseph William Garbarino( Book )
7 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 808 libraries worldwide
Why do the faculty of colleges and universities organize? Is faculty unionism inevitable? Is faculty unionism irreversible? What is the impact of faculty unionism? These four questions are central to this comprehensive review of experience to date with collective bargaining. Collective bargaining is viewed in the context of rapid changes in colleges and universities in the 1960's and 1970's that have threatened traditional relationships among professors, their institutions, and other sectors of society. Among the subjects discussed are traditional forms of faculty participation in institutional governance; the development, strengths, and weaknesses of some of the national organizations that now represent faculty members as bargaining agents; the changes in faculty relationships to their institutions that have occurred with the development of collective bargaining; and some of the educational, political and administrative issues that are raised by the new bargaining procedures. One chapter focuses attention on faculty bargaining at American's 2-year colleges. Another chapter reviews the British experience with collective bargaining. The author concludes, among other things, that collective bargaining will be a feature of higher education for the foreseeable future. (Author)

Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 319 libraries worldwide
California and its economy continue to draw benefits from immigration. However, a combination of much larger immigration flows and major changes in the state's economic environment have increased the costs of immigration, and unless current policies with regard to immigration and immigrants are changed, the benefits the state currently receives from immigrants may not continue. International immigration to California has steadily increased over the past 30 years and has profoundly affected the state's population and economy. Some observers of these changes are seeing the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. For others, California has become 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 educational and economic progress since their arrival? This book is the culmination of a comprehensive study of how immigration has changed over the past three decades. It assesses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, with lessons to be drawn for other states, the nation, and even other countries

The Ford Foundation : the men and the millions. by Dwight Macdonald( Book )
1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"Thirty years since it was first published, Macdonald's masterful book on the Ford Foundation remains the only book-length account of this institution that has been published. Despite the calls for a book carrying on the story from 1956 on the part of Richard Magat and McGeorge Bundy, that book has yet to be written. In his stimulating introduction to this new edition, Francis Sutton suggests why this is so. The Foundation, he observes, has never again aroused as much public interest as it did in the years Macdonald's describes. The announcement that a new program would be launched with the riches that 90 percent of the Ford Motor Company's stock would bring captured the attention of the media all across the country. Its sheer size was astounding; in 1954 the Ford Foundation spent four times as much as the Rockefeller Foundation and ten times as much as the Carnegie Corporation. Its expenditures were very large in relation to the budgets of the institutions that looked to it for help. Consequently, the American public waited expectantly to see what this huge foundation would do. But the Ford Foundation was not only big; it was controversial in those years, and inspired activism in the media, Congressional investigations, and political wrath. Macdonald nicely captures the American ambivalence toward large bureacratic organizations, which the Ford Foundation epitomizes, with its own language and, one might argue, its own values. Sutton points out that Macdonald's writing also sets a model for foundation history and indeed philanthropic history, with a poised, ironic detachment that has remained rare. His introduction points out the main themes of Macdonald's book and examines the extent to which they continue to illumine the foundation in the years since this book was first published. It looks at how well the Foundation has addressed the objectives it set for itself, and nicely captures the giant changes that this giant foundation has experienced through the 1960s and"--Provided by publisher
