A Profile of the Negro American

By Pettigrew, Thomas F

Van Nostrand, 1964. Soft cover. Good/No Jacket. 5" X 8. p/b 250 pages, condition is good, the flyleaf has been removed. In this significant book, Thomas Pettigrew presents a lucid report on the Negro American at mid-century. He provides a many-sided view of him-his personality, his genetic composition, his mental and physical health, his intelligence his crime rate, and his current protest. This volume offers new insights, both social and psychological, into one of the United States' major problems. If Negroes had not accepted American society, if they had not adopted the larger group's values and aspirations, the pattern of discrimination would not have such a demoralizing effect. The frustration comes of his accepting as valuable all that the rest of America treasures, but being held back from achieving the very goals for which society urges all citizens to strive. The development of this central theme is one of the author's unique and theoretical contributions to this book. In the course of his penetrating investigations, Professor Pettigrew discusses the popular prejudices, myths, ideas and fallacies concerning the Negro American today. Extensively researched and documented, this volume contains references to 565 books, articles, and studies.

Surviving Secrets

By Walker, Moira

Open University Press, 1992. Paperback. Very Good. 5.5 x 8.7 x 0.4 inches. p/b 211 pages, condition is very good, some edge wear to the covers. In recent years considerable attention has been paid to the subject of abuse in childhood. Less attention has been paid to what happens to the vast number of women and men who have reached adulthood with this experience haunting them. Moira Walker overviews the experience and its implications, dealing with physical, sexual and psychological abuse. An essential part of the content is based on interviews with survivors of child abuse, voicing their views on the effects of the experience and the effectiveness of the help offered. At the same time Surviving Secrets seeks to understand the context in which abuse takes place, the society which itself contains and sustains abuse at various levels. It is a moving account of the experience and effects of childhood abuse and a handbook for those in the caring professions, in voluntary organizations and elsewhere who are helping survivors of abuse.
