"Interprets Leo Strauss's political philosophy from a conservative standpoint and argues that Strauss was a Cold War liberal. Suggests inattention to Christianity is crucial to the Straussian portrayal of Anglo-American democracy as a universal regime whose eternal ideals of liberty and constitutional governmnent accord with the teachings of Plato and Aristotle, rather than the Gospels"--

This important book looks at developments that are changing our understanding of the role of education in citizenship and the possibilities of democratic participation. The chapters cover theories of citizenship and education and the transition from the welfare state to the neoliberal state, and draw on Hobbes, Locke, Jefferson, Kant, Hegel, Marx and other writers such as C. Mouffe and C. Pateman to outline contemporary approaches to multiculturalism in education and citizenship.

Specifically, the debates in the three decades leading up to 1929 were conceived in terms of desirable versus undesirable immigrants. This not only cemented judgements about specific European groups but reinforced prevailing biases against groups already present in the United States, particularly African Americans, whose inferior status and second-class citizenship - enshrined in Jim Crow laws and embedded in pseudo-scientific arguments about racial classifications - appear to have been consolidated in these decades, Although the values of different groups have always been recognised in the United States, King gives the most thorough account yet of how eugenic arguments were used to establish barriers and to favour an Anglo-Saxon conception of American identity, rejecting claims of other traditions. thus the immigration controversy emerges here as a significant precursor to recent multicultural debates.

Multi-culturalism Roots and Realities Edited by C. James Trotman Examines the place of multiculturalism in our society. The most meaningful support for multiculturalism has come from intellectuals, such as those represented in this book, who have discovered greater meaning about our American past by incorporating the concepts driving multi-culturalism. These essays engage the word and its meanings, as varied as they are, in an effort to add and expand on the dialogue for this ever-increasingly vital concept. However, Multiculturalism: Roots and Realities is not a book aimed at debates; instead, each essay generally makes use of multiculturalism as a way of examining history and social themes, while providing a broader and perhaps a deeper view of 19th-century American life and thought. The book's general goal, which in fact belongs to all of us, is to recognize excellence in the cultures of the historically neglected, claim excellence where it is found, and position it so that it can contribute to a fuller understanding of the human condition. Contributors include Susan Alves, Barbara J. Ballard, Jeannine DeLombard, Juniper Ellis, Joe B. Fulton, Henry Louis Gates, Richard E. Greene, Richard Hardack, Julie Husband, Gillian Johns, Verner D. Mitchell, Christine Palumbo-DeSimone, Janet Shannon, C. James Trotman, Matthew Wilson, and Julie Winch C.

This is a recognized classic in the psychology of the American peoples. It brings together a series of reflections upon the nature of culture and of democracy, upon their bearing to one another in the United States, and upon their underlying dynamics in the social and spiritual endeavors of the many peoples striving toward life, liberty, and happiness amid the varied settings of the American scene. Kallen argues that various decisions made throughout the history of the United States have been determined by prejudice. In his new introduction, Stephen Whitfield delves deeply into Kallen's background, discussing the influences on his life and work. This volume will be a necessary addition to the personal libraries of sociologists, political theorists, philosophers, and ethnic studies scholars.
