In Their Place: White America Defines Her Minorities, 1850-1950.
Carlson, Lewis H., Ed.; Colburn, George A., Ed.
This sourcebook includes addresses by American Presidents, speeches by Congressmen and Senators, decisions by the U. S. Supreme Court, and articles in prestigious scholarly journals, popular fiction, and mass-circulation magazines, which were sampled over a 100-year period from 1850 to 1950. Each of seven parts discusses such topics as the image of the particular group in literature, scientists and the group, the legal status of such groups, and the segregation of the groups from "mainstream" American life. Part I discusses the American Indians; Part II the Afro-Americans; Part III the Chicanos; Part IV, the Chinese Americans; Part V, Japanese-Americans; Part VI, Jewish-Americans; and, Part VII, the Anglo-Saxon and the new immigrant. A list of selected readings is included. (JM)
