Examines how the racial lenses of the social sciences and the subscription of social scientists to whites' racial common sense have limited their understanding of racial matters and handicapped their capacity to appreciate the significance of the "race effect" (they call it the "racial stratification effect"). With an assemblage of leading scholars, White Logic, White Methods explores the possibilities and necessary dethroning of current social research practices, and demands a complete overhaul of current methods, towards a multicultural and pluralist approach to what we know, think, and question. Readers in various social sciences will find useful the chapters in the collection,but all will agree that the introductory and concluding chapters to the volume (Towards a Definition of White Logic and White Methods, and Telling the Real Tale of the Hunt: Towards a Race Conscious Sociology of Racial Stratification) are likely to become classics in the field of racial and ethnic relations.

White Supremacy and Racism in the Post civil Rights Era

Is a racial structure still firmly in place in the United States? White Supremacy and Racism answers that question with an unequivocal yes, describing a contemporary system that operates in a covert, subtle, institutional, and superficially nonracial fash on. Assessing the major perspectives that social analysts have relied on to explain race and racial relations, Bonilla-Silva labels the post-civil rights ideology as color-blind racism: a system of social arrangements that maintain white privilege at all levels. His analysis of racial politics in the United States makes a compelling argument for a new civil rights movement rooted in the race-class needs of minority masses, multiracial in character - and focused on attaining substantive rather than formal equality.

How does space illuminate educational inequity? Where and how can spatial analysis be used to disrupt educational inequity? Which tools are most appropriate for the spatial analysis of educational equity? This book addresses these questions and explores the use of critical spatial analysis to uncover the dimensions of entrenched and systemic racial inequities in educational settings and identify ways to redress them. The contributors to this book – some of whom are pioneering scholars of critical race spatial analysis theory and methodology – demonstrate the application of the theory and tools applied to specific locales, and in doing so illustrate how this spatial and temporal lens enriches traditional approaches to research. The opening macro-theoretical chapter lays the foundation for the book, rooting spatial analyses in critical commitments to studying injustice. Among the innovative methodological chapters included in this book is the re-conceptualization of mapping and space beyond the simple exploration of external spaces to considering internal geographies, highlighting how the privileged may differ in socio-spatial thinking from oppressed communities and what may be learned from both perspectives; data representations that allow the construction of varied narratives based on differences in positionality and historicity of perspectives; the application of redlining to the analysis of classroom interactions; the use of historical archives to uncover the process of marginalization; and the application of techniques such as the fotonovela and GIS to identify how spaces are defined and can be reimagined. The book demonstrates the analytical and communicative power of mapping and its potential for identifying and dismantling racial injustice in education. The editors conclude by drawing connections across sections, and elucidating the tensions and possibilities for future research. Contributors Benjamin Blaisdell Graham S. Garlick Leigh Anna Hidalgo Mark C. Hogrebe Joshua Radinsky Daniel G. Solórzano William F. Tate Verónica N. Vélez Federico R. Waitoller

Mapping geographies of power and knowledge in qualitative research "In this foundational tome, Professor Celine-Marie Pascale critiques methodology in relationship to specific qualitative methods and argues cogently that despite good intentions, most of this research is still tethered to the Cartesian paradigm thus limiting its emancipatory potential. This is an impressive book that will likely become a classic!" — Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Duke University, co-author with Tukufu Zuberi, White Logic, White Methods: Racism and Methodology 2012 Winner of the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry Distinguished Book Award! Using clear language and concrete examples, this text examines theoretical and historical foundations that shape the premise and logic of qualitative social research. It analyzes qualitative methodology and methods in relationship to issues of agency, subjectivity, and experience. Rooted to feminist, critical race, and post-structural literature, it is concerned with social justice as it critiques current research paradigms and advances broad alternatives. This is an ideal text for students in graduate-level courses in Methodology, Epistemology, Qualitative Research Methods, Data Analysis, Ethnomethodology, Symbolic Interaction, Phenomenology, Grounded Theory, and related courses the social, behavioral, and health sciences.

In the struggle over affirmative action, no employment setting has seen more friction than urban fire departments. Thirty years of legal and political efforts have opened the doors of this historically white male preserve, but men of color have yet to consolidate their gains, and women's progress has been even more tenuous. In this unique and compelling account of affirmative action at the "street level," Carol Chetkovich explores the ways in which this program has succeeded and failed. Chetkovich follows the men and women of the Oakland Fire Department Class 1-91 through their academy training and eighteen-month probation. In vivid and sometimes surprising narratives, newcomers tell of their first battle with a full-fledged fire, their reactions to hazing rituals, and their relationships with veterans and fellow trainees. Real Heat explores how the process of becoming a firefighter interacts with the dimensions of race and gender to support some and discourage others. The book examines the implications of these interactions for public policy and social justice. Carol Chetkovich holds a Ph.D. in Public Policy from the University of California at Berkeley. She writes on policies concerning gender, race, and disability.

Social Security Policy in Britain. . . is most welcome for having been written by Michael Hill whose reputation as a writer of knowledgeable, usable, readable books which are both summative and thematically structured is so well deserved. They have been the answer to many students prayers (and our own) in their struggle to see the social policy wood from the trees. Helen Bolderson, Brunel University, UK For anyone who wants to get a basic overview of the complex problems of social security in the UK today, and the various controversies surrounding it, this book is warmly recommended. Labour Research He (Michael Hill) presents an excellent exposition of the social security system accurate for mid-1989, the time of writing, successfully clarifying a very complex system. The book will be very useful to undergraduates doing relevant degrees, as well as to social work and other related professional students. I shall certainly be recommending the book to my students. Cordelia Grimwood, Benefits Hill s lucid discussion of administrative problems (the poverty trap ) and of the interaction among programs. . . is nearly as relevant to the US system as it is to the British. R.D. Robertson, University of Missouri, St Louis, US This major textbook examines the current state of British social security policy and explores the options for the future. Using a policy analysis approach, Michael Hill emphasises the need to understand the political processes which have shaped policy. He stresses the need to situate any proposals for reform of these policies in a realistic political, social and economic context. As well being concerned to explore the forces which have shaped policy, the book also shows how it has been implemented and explains how social security policy interacts with other public policies.

Many racial and ethnic groups in the United States, including blacks, Hispanics, Asians, American Indians, and others, have historically faced severe discrimination-pervasive and open denial of civil, social, political, educational, and economic opportunities. Today, large differences among racial and ethnic groups continue to exist in employment, income and wealth, housing, education, criminal justice, health, and other areas. While many factors may contribute to such differences, their size and extent suggest that various forms of discriminatory treatment persist in U.S. society and serve to undercut the achievement of equal opportunity. Measuring Racial Discrimination considers the definition of race and racial discrimination, reviews the existing techniques used to measure racial discrimination, and identifies new tools and areas for future research. The book conducts a thorough evaluation of current methodologies for a wide range of circumstances in which racial discrimination may occur, and makes recommendations on how to better assess the presence and effects of discrimination.
