The Changing Terrain of Race and Ethnicity

by Maria Krysan Amanda E. Lewis

The legal institutions of overt racism in the United States have been eliminated, but social surveys and investigations of social institutions confirm the continuing significance of race and the enduring presence of negative racial attitudes. This shift from codified and explicit racism to more subtle forms comes at a time when the very boundaries of race and ethnicity are being reshaped by immigration and a rising recognition that old systems of racial classification inadequately capture a diverse America. In The Changing Terrain of Race and Ethnicity, editors Maria Krysan and Amanda Lewis bring together leading scholars of racial dynamics to study the evolution of America s racial problem and its consequences for race relations in the future. The Changing Terrain of Race and Ethnicity opens by attempting to answer a puzzling question: how is it that so many whites think racism is no longer a problem but so many nonwhites disagree? Sociologist Lawrence Bobo contends that whites exhibit what he calls laissez faire racism, which ignores historical and structural contributions to racial inequality and does nothing to remedy the injustices of the status quo. Tyrone Forman makes a similar case in his chapter, contending that an emphasis on color blindness allows whites to be comforted by the idea that all races are on a level playing field, while not recognizing the advantages they themselves have reaped from years of inequality. The book then moves to a discussion of the new ways that Americans view race. Eduardo Bonilla-Silva and Karen Glover argue that the United States is moving from a black-white divide to a tripartite system, where certain light-skinned, non-threatening minority groups are considered honorary whites. The book s final section reexamines the theoretical underpinnings of scholarship on race and ethnicity. Joe Feagin argues that research on racism focuses too heavily on how racial boundaries are formed and needs to concentrate more on how those boundaries are used to maintain privileges for certain groups at the expense of others. Manning Marable contends that racism should be addressed at an institutional level to see the prevalence of structural racism deeply entrenched patterns of inequality that are coded by race and justified by stereotypes. The Changing Terrain of Race and Ethnicity provides an in-depth view of racism in modern America, which may be less conspicuous but not necessarily less destructive than its predecessor, Jim Crow. The book s rich analysis and theoretical insight shed light on how, despite many efforts to end America s historic racial problem, it has evolved and persisted into the 21st century. "

Changing the Face of the Waters: The Promise and Challenge of Sustainable Aquaculture

by World Bank

Aquaculture--the farming of fish and aquatic plants--has become the world's fastest-growing food production sector, even as the amount of wild fish caught in our seas and fresh waters declines. From fish foods and pharmaceuticals to management of entire aquatic ecosystems, acquaculture is truly changing the face of the waters. Increased growth, however, brings increased risk, and aquaculture now lies at a crossroads. One direction points toward the giant strides in productivity, industry concentration, and product diversification. Another direction points toward the dangers of environmental degradation and the marginalization of small fish farmers. Yet another direction invites aquaculture to champion the poor and provide vital environmental services to stressed aquatic environments. 'Changing the Face of the Waters' offers a cutting-edge analysis of the critical challenges facing aquaculture, balancing aquaculture's role in economic growth with the need for sound management of natural resources. The book also provides guidance on sustainable aquaculture by evaluating alternative development pathways, placing particular emphasis on the application of lessons from Asia to Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. Aimed at policy makers, planners, and scientists, this book provides a comprehensive frame of reference for orienting ideas and initiatives in this dynamic industry.

Changing the Game Plan: The Trey Rood Story

by Trey Rood Cherie Rood

Trey Rood was a young, healthy high school athlete when he received the diagnosis of stage III melanoma, which progressed to stage IV in two short years. With a five-year survival rate of five percent, Trey and his mother Cherie refused to accept the poor odds given by doctors or that the aggressive cancer would prevent Trey from ever attending college. Instead, they chose to fight with everything they had. And fight they did. Their tireless search for treatment led them from home in Georgia, to Germany, and ultimately to Texas, where Trey was a pioneer participant at MD Anderson Cancer Center's adoptive T-cell therapy trial. With Trey's cancer now in remission, Trey, Cherie, and their family share their story here---a story of hope, encouragement, strength, and ultimately triumph. Their story of how, together, they beat cancer.

Changing the Script

by Daniel Schultz

In recent years, and in particular since the election of Barack Obama, the religious conversation in America has been dominated by calls for progressives to move beyond "partisanship" by reaching out to evangelicals in order to create a "big tent" on social issues such as abortion and marriage equality, despite the lack of evidence that such a strategy can or ever did work. This misguided notion that we can build a shared political and religious center has for the most part shut out true progressive voices, allowing a small conservative minority to control the political and religious debate in this country, with only the most tepid of moral criticism from the religious centrists who claim to desire bipartisan consensus.In Changing the Script, Daniel Schultz, one of the leading progressive religious voices in America today, builds upon the insights of Old Testament scholar and theologian Walter Brueggemann to identify five "scripts" that exercise unseen power in our society: the therapeutic, technological, consumerist, militarist, and conformist. Confronting each of these scripts and the actions of both the Right and the Left that have allowed them to take root in our culture, Schultz voices a perspective that shows what an authentically progressive and authentically faithful religious ideal would truly look like.Daniel Schultz is a pastor in the United Church of Christ and co-founder of the blog Street Prophets (www.streetprophets.com), where he writes as "pastordan." He has contributed to many online sites and publications and is a graduate of the Candler School of Theology at Emory University.

In CHANGING THE SUBJECT Martin once again deforms traditional notions of the story, giving us beautifully digressive revenge-fantasies, hysterical moral tales, and his singular, uncanny brand of the shaggy dog yarn

Changing the Way We Die: Compassionate End of Life Care and The Hospice Movement

by Fran Smith

Changing the Way We Die, by award-winning journalists Fran Smith and Sheila Himmel, is the first book to take a broad, penetrating look at the hospice landscape, through gripping stories of real patients, families, and doctors, as well as the corporate giants that increasingly own the market. Changing the Way We Die is a vital resource for anyone who wants to be prepared to face life's most challenging and universal event. You will learn: -- Hospice use is soaring, yet most people come too late to get the full benefits. -- With the age tsunami, it becomes even more critical for families and patients to choose end-of-life care wisely. -- Hospice at its best is much more than a way to relieve the suffering of dying. It is a way to live.

Changing Tides

by Michael Thomas Ford

Few authors write about the full spectrum of gay men's lives with as much warmth, honesty, humor, and compassion as Michael Thomas Ford. Now the bestselling author of Last Summer, Looking For It, and Full Circle, delivers a shimmering, heartwarming story of one summer in the lives of three people, of the elusive search for human connection--and the necessity of love. Marine biologist Ben Ransome understands the sea, especially the tiny, beautiful sea slugs he has studied and admired for most of his life. What Ben doesn't understand are people, and now, one of the most important people in his life--his sixteen-year-old daughter, Caddie--is coming to live with him for the summer. But the sweet, happy child he remembers has been replaced by a wounded, angry stranger who resents everything about her father. Caddie is determined to act out in every way, leaving Ben feeling more alone than ever. Hudson Jones has come to Monterey, California, to find the answers to all his questions. The young, ambitious graduate student believes he's found a lost John Steinbeck novel called Changing Tides that seems to hint at the author's love for his best friend, Ed "Doc" Ricketts. If he can prove it, his career will be made. And then, perhaps he can quiet the personal demons that haunt him. But first, he'll need some local help in his research, and Ben just may be able to supply him with access to the information he needs. It's clear to Hudson that the handsome, quietly passionate Ben needs some help, too--with Caddie and his life. Sharing dinners and walks on the beach, intellectual discussions and heart-to-heart conversations, Ben and Hudson move from tentative friendship to a surprising, revelatory relationship, one with the power to point them toward the most important discoveries of their lives. For Ben, it's a summer of new beginnings, even as his daughter embarks on a dangerous course that will test the new happiness he's found. . . Changing Tides is an extraordinary novel that explores the glorious flaws and frailties of human beings in the never-ending struggle to connect, to be open to love, and to embrace the unknown in order to live fully. Praise For The Novels Of Michael Thomas Ford Full Circle "Summer isn't the same without hitting the beach, getting a sunburn and devouring a deliciously soapy novel. Ford knows how to draw in a reader with sex and sin." --Entertainment Weekly "Impactful. . .real. . .Ford's beautiful story makes it all seem possible and believable. . .these are rich characters, heartfelt descriptions and real-life happenings that resonate. . .allow yourself to get lost in this story." --The Lambda Book Report "The characters' many brushes with homosexual history--Harvey Milk trolling for votes in gay bars, the unfurling of the first Rainbow flag, the sexual energy of early ACT UP meetings--will resonate with gay readers." --Publishers Weekly Looking For It "An insightful and entertaining read about what we seek, and what answers we find within and without." --Booklist "Give Michael Thomas Ford credit for giving us a group of identifiable characters who do not live in L.A., NYC, or Miami, but in a small town like those where most readers actually live. It's also nice to see these characters addressing realistic differences of generation as well as spirituality, in addition to the usual mix of looking for love, dealing with internalized homophobia and creating support systems through friendships and families of choice." --Instinct Last Summer "He effectively draws his readers into the wild world of Provincetown. . .plenty of page-turning drama. . .a winner."--Entertainment Weekly "A great summer novel that's perfect for the beach or a lazy weekend in a hammock out back. It has, indeed, the potential to become a gay classic. That's because Ford has succeeded in putting a little bit of each of us in his characters. But the real proof of the pudding: you'll find yourself thinking about these chara...

The Changing Voice of the Anti-Abortion Movement: The Rise of "Pro-Woman" Rhetoric in Canada and the United States

by Kelly Gordon Paul Saurette

When journalists, academics, and politicians describe the North American anti-abortion movement, they often describe a campaign that is male-dominated, aggressive, and even violent in its tactics, religious in motivation, anti-women in tone, and fetal-centric in arguments and rhetoric. Are they correct?In The Changing Voice of the Anti-Abortion Movement, Paul Saurette and Kelly Gordon suggest that the reality is far more complicated, particularly in Canada. Today, anti-abortion activism increasingly presents itself as "pro-women": using female spokespersons, adopting medical and scientific language to claim that abortion harms women, and employing a wide range of more subtle framing and narrative rhetorical tactics that use traditionally progressive themes to present the anti-abortion position as more feminist than pro-choice feminism.Following a succinct but comprehensive overview of the two-hundred year history of North American debate and legislation on abortion, Saurette and Gordon present the results of their systematic, five-year quantitative and qualitative discourse analysis, supplemented by extensive first-person observations, and outline the implications that flow from these findings. Their discoveries are a challenge to our current assumptions about the abortion debate today, and their conclusions will be compelling for both scholars and activists alike.

Chango's Beads and Two-Tone Shoes

by William Kennedy

'Kennedy writes with verve and nerve' Stephen King When journalist Daniel Quinn meets Ernest Hemingway at the Floridita bar in Havana, Cuba, in 1957, he has no idea that his own affinity for simple, declarative sentences will change his life radically overnight. So begins William Kennedy's latest novel - a tale of revolutionary intrigue, heroic journalism, crooked politicians, drug-running gangsters, Albany race riots, and the improbable rise of Fidel Castro. Quinn's epic journey carries him through the nightclubs and jungles of Cuba and into the newsrooms and racially charged streets of Albany on the day Robert Kennedy is fatally shot in 1968. The odyssey brings Quinn and his exotic but unpredictable wife Renata, a debutante revolutionary, face to face with the darkest facets of human nature and illuminates the power of love in the presence of death. Changó's Beads and Two-Tone Shoes is the long-awaited new book in William Kennedy's Albany cycle, the cult series of novels set in the seedy underbelly of a vividly reimagined Albany, New York.

by Chris Taylor Charles Stephenson

This book describes the design, construction and manning of these defensive positions, as well as considering more widely the occupation of the Channel Islands by the Germans.
