329 SHERIF, MUZAFER WITH HARVEY, O, J.; HOOD, WILLIAM R., SHERIF, CAROLYN & WHITE, B. JACK. The Robbers Cave Experiment: Intergroup Conflict And Cooperation.
Wesleyan University Press: 1988. 0819561940 / 9780819561947 Revised Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
A classic of behavioral science. Originally issued in 1954 and updated in 1961 and 1987, this pioneering study of "small group" conflict and cooperation has long been out-of-print. It is now available, in cloth and paper, with a new introduction by Donald Campbell, and a new postscript by O. J. Harvey. In this famous experiment, one of the earliest in inter-group relationships, two dozen twelve-year-old boys in summer camp were formed into two groups, the Rattlers and the Eagles, and induced first to become militantly ethnocentric, then intensely cooperative. Friction and stereotyping were stimulated by a tug-of-war, by frustrations perceived to be caused by the "out" group, and by separation from the others. Harmony was stimulated by close contact between previously hostile groups and by the introduction of goals that neither group could meet alone. The experiment demonstrated that conflict and enmity between groups can be transformed into cooperation and vice versa and that circumstances, goals, and external manipulation can alter behavior. Some have seen the findings of the experiment as having implications for reduction of hostility among racial and ethnic groups and among nations, while recognizing the difficulty of control of larger groups. "Magnificently conceived and brilliantly carried forward from beginning to end. . . . I do not believe that anyone can escape from the impact of the demonstration."—Gardner Murphy "Unusual for its effective combination of experimental method in a real life situation with the successful test of important hypotheses."—Ralph H. Turner "There have been no subsequent studies of anywhere near the magnitude of the Robbers Cave experiment. Reading it, owning a copy for repeated referral, becomes essential for anyone specializing in the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary areas of integroup and international conflict."—Donald T. Campbell, from the Introduction to the Wesleyan Edition "[The Robbers Cave Experiment] has, in my opinion, achieved the status of a classical investigation in experimental social psychology. . . . [It] represents a valuable contribution to our knowledge in the very complicated field of intergroup relations."—Otto Klineberg

335 SMITH, LILLIAN. Killers Of The Dream.
W. W. Norton & Company, New York: 1961. Revised and Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar cover. Library discard. Reading copy. 
Using the autobiographical method, Lillian Smith looked at a childhood spent in a segregated culture: Turning memories this way and that, moving them close up to modern facts, then moving them back in time until they were close to archaic patterns and man's ancient ways, she revealed the deeper meanings in the work "segregation," making racial segregation both a symbol and symptom of the estrangements that in modern times have split man off from himself, his fellow men, his world, and his God.
