Natives and strangers : ethnic groups and the building of America by Leonard Dinnerstein( Book )
51 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in English and held by 2,770 libraries worldwide
Brought completely up to date to reflect recent scholarship and the new wave of immigration to the United States in the last decade, the second edition of this immensely popular book highlights a much-neglected dimension of the American past by giving a unique focus to the history of the nation's minority groups. Within the context of the country's economic development, the authors show how blacks, Indians, and immigrant minorities helped transform an agrarian society into the modern industrial-urban nation of the 1990s. Remarkable in the breadth of its coverage, this is the first survey that integrates the experiences of racial, religious, and ethnic minorities to present an overall sense of American history while illuminating major trends in the growth of the United States. The Second Edition includes entirely new material on Indian efforts to retain their cultural independence and their attempts to shape relations with the majority society. The book also new data on recent refugees and current immigration legislation. Written in the same clear, straightforward style that made the previous edition so popular, the Second Edition, which features many well-chosen illustrations, will be essential reading for students of American ethnic history

Antisemitism in America by Leonard Dinnerstein( Book )
18 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 1,520 libraries worldwide
Is antisemitism on the rise in America? Did the "hymietown" comment by Jesse Jackson and the Crown Heights riot signal a resurgence of antisemitism among blacks? The surprising answer to both questions, according to Leonard Dinnerstein, is no--Jews have never been more at home in America. But what we are seeing today, he writes, are the well-publicized results of a long tradition of prejudice, suspicion, and hatred against Jews--the direct product of the Christian teachings underlying so much of America's national heritage. In Antisemitism in America, Leonard Dinnerstein provides a landmark wo
The Leo Frank case by Leonard Dinnerstein( Book )
23 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in English and held by 1,412 libraries worldwide
In April 1913 the body of thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan was found in the basement of the Atlanta pencil factory where she worked. Leo Frank, the northern Jew who managed the factory and the last person who admitted seeing her alive, was arrested and accused of her murder. After two years of trials highlighted by sensational newspaper coverage, popular hysteria, and legal demagogery, Frank was sentenced to death. Georgia's governor commuted the sentence to life imprisonment. But then an outraged mob, dedicated to the execution of "justice," kidnapped Frank from prison and lynched him near Mary's hometown. The only full account of the murders of Mary Phagan and Leo Frank includes a new preface presenting the most recent evidence of Frank's innocence

Now in its fifth edition, Natives and Strangers: A History of Ethnic Americans addresses these and many other vital questions. A comprehensive and accessible text, this unique volume explores various aspects of American minority group history. Examining the impact that America has had on minority peoples and cultures--and vice versa--it also provides insights into the different conditions, conflicts, and contradictions that members of American minority groups experienced. As in earlier editions, the fifth edition integrates the experiences of various racial, religious, and national minorities from around the globe--including American Indians, African Americans, and immigrants from Europe, Asia, Latin America, and other parts of the world--explaining how their histories intertwined with the emergence of modern America. Revised, updated, and condensed, the fifth edition of Natives and Strangers incorporates the latest research on such critical topics as American Indian affairs, western American development, and African American experiences. It also focuses on successive waves of different immigrants while exploring the evolution and complexities of American immigration policies. The authors conclude with reflections on where the nation stands today as an ethnically and racially diverse society. Featuring anecdotes, charts, graphs, tables, and an extensive updated bibliography, Natives and Strangers, Fifth Edition, is ideal for undergraduate courses that cover immigration, American social history, and American ethnic groups. -- Back cover

Antisemitism in America by Leonard Dinnerstein( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
In this [book, the author] provides the comprehensive history of prejudice against Jews in the United States from colonial times to the present. [The book] traces American antisemitism from its roots in Christian teachings to its present day permutations. By including separate chapters on antisemitism in the South and among African Americans he shows how prejudice among both whites and blacks flowed from the same stream of Southern evangelical Christianity. Despite the ebb and flow of antisemitism throughout the American past [he also] emphasizes that "in no Christian country has antisemitism been weaker than it has been in the United States," with its traditions of tolerance, diversity, and a secular national government. This book, however, reveals in disturbing detail the resilience, and vehemence, of this ugly prejudice. Penetrating, authoritative, and frequently alarming, this is the definitive account of a plague that refuses to go away. -Back cover
