The Subject is Race: Traditional Ideologies and the Teaching of Race Relations.
Rose, Peter I.
This book is a report of a nationwide survey, begun in 1965, on the kinds, extent, curriculum content, and academic climate of race relations courses taught at colleges and universities. Information was also sought on the texts and readings, research activities, and teacher qualifications. Data were gathered through mail questionnaires sent to 2483 schools throughout the country. The book includes historical background material on the existence and persistence of prejudice and discrimination. Also present are the views of sociologists and anthropologists on racial and cultural differences and intergroup conflicts. Four chapters present the findings of this study. (NH)
