[very nice copy, clean and tight, blemished only by the word "discarded" stamped in red on top edge (NO other markings of any sort); jacket similarly clean and nice, with just one small closed tear at top of spine]. "For nearly a century, the discouse on ethnoracial minorities in the United States has been framed by debates over assimilation versus pluralism. In this challenging look at race, culture, and the nature of integration, [the author] explores that discourse, from its philosophical origins in intellectual responses to the 'Jewish Question' to its contemporary formulations. [His] subjects range from Robert E. Park's shifting views on the relation between assimilation and civilizational advance through the imagery of ethnic groups found in novels, slave narratives, and film; the challenge to ethnohistorical views represented by the Chinese diaspora; and the 'badge of slavery' that Asian, Hispanic, and Native American groups have been forced to wear. Finally, [he] reflects on the innovative ways of speaking, writing, and acting forged by the revival of race consciousness and offers a perspective on how to understand more constructively the major African-American literary and social critics."
