Readings in Minority-Group Relations.
Ford, David L., Jr., Ed.
The primary objectives of this book are to provide a background on how minority group members adapt and accommodate to various types of organizational circumstances, and to help the reader understand the differences in behaviors and job-related outcomes for white and nonwhite group members. The book is stated to be designed for present and potential managers, human relations and organizational consultants, personnel administrators, students of organizational behavior and management, and others who are interested in managing the interface between "different" groups of people. The book is divided into four major sections: minority group social interaction, minority leadership and competition, the minority worker, and minorities in the organization. The section on minority group leadership and competition offers articles relating to nature of problems encountered in supervisory positions. The section on minority group social interaction contains articles covering the areas of racial attitudes and perceptions, and the effects of social prejudice on behavior. The articles on the minority worker highlight research findings pertaining to work values, work expectations, and job satisfaction of minority group employees. The section on minorities in the organization contains articles dealing with the integration of blacks into white organizations, employment programs for minorities, and testing and evaluation procedures.
