Beyond the Melting Pot by Nathan Glazer

Book Description

Beyond the Melting Pot was one of the most influential books published during the 1960s. This second edition includes a new 90-page Introduction, "New York City in 1960," in which the authors, with all their previous depth and verve, examine the turn of events since 1963, the date of the first edition. Their concerns are directed to such developments as the rise of militant black demands and the response to these of the city's peoples and political structures; the decline of Catholic power in Lindsay's New York and the rise in power of Jews and WASPs; the growth of a black middle class and the economic and political difficulties of the Puerto Ricans.The authors note that events and further study have led them to change their views on several matters, and these points are clarified in the Introduction. Nevertheless, most of their perceptions and their central thesis (that "melting pot" assimilation does not happen) remain as valid as ever. In the same way, these appraisals of the first edition remain fully in force:Richard H. Rovere, The New Yorker: "Beyond the Melting perhaps the most perceptive inquiry into American minorities ever made." Oscar Handlin, New York Times: "They have put together a thoughtful analysis that will help Americans deal with one of the most pressing problems of the great cities. That itself is a substantial accomplishment."Harpers Magazine: "...sure in its grasp of relations between economic and social fact, cogent, complex, and brightly written."Time Magazine: "...provocative...Glazer...and Moynihan...write with a refreshing candor on a subject that is usually treated all too delicately...They write compassionately of the problems minority groups have faced, but they forthrightly point out that many of these problems are compounded by each group's special characteristics."

Books By Author Nathan Glazer

From a Cause to a Style by Nathan Glazer From a Cause to a Style, Hardback (February 2007)

Modernism in architecture and urban design has failed the American city. This work includes the articles and essays which reflect the author's ideas on subjects ranging from the livable city and public housing to building design, public memorials, and the uses of public space.

Lonely Crowd by Nathan Glazer Lonely Crowd, Paperback (March 2001)

A study of 20th-century American society. Its now-classic analysis of the "new middle class" in terms of inner-directed and other-directed social character opened new dimensions in our understanding of the psychological, political and economic problems that confront the individual in society.

New Social Question by Nathan Glazer New Social Question, Hardback (February 2000)

Shows that a fundamental practical and philosophical justification for traditional welfare policies - that all citizens share equal risks - has been undermined by social and intellectual change. This work traces the history of the welfare state and its founding premise that risks are equally distributed and unpredictable.
