369 TURNER, JACK. Awakening To Race: Individualism And Social Consciousness In America.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London: 2012. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The election of America's first black president has led many to believe that race is no longer a real obstacle to success and that remaining racial inequality stems largely from the failure of minority groups to take personal responsibility for seeking out opportunities. Often this argument is made in the name of the long tradition of self-reliance and American individualism. In Awakening to Race, Jack Turner upends this view, arguing that it expresses not a deep commitment to the values of individualism, but a narrow understanding of them. Drawing on the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Frederick Douglass, Ralph Ellison, and James Baldwin, Turner offers an original reconstruction of democratic individualism in American thought. All these thinkers, he shows, held that personal responsibility entails a refusal to be complicit in injustice and a duty to combat the conditions and structures that support it. At a time when individualism is invoked as a reason for inaction, Turner makes the individualist tradition the basis of a bold and impassioned case for race consciousness—consciousness of the ways that race continues to constrain opportunity in America. Turner's "new individualism" becomes the grounds for concerted public action against racial injustice.

376 VISSON, LYNN. Wedded Strangers: The Challenges Of Russian- American Marriages.
Hippocrene Books, New York: 0781808324 / 9780781808323 Expanded Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Russian-American marriages reflect many of the same issues and problems of other inter-cultural marriages, but at the same time face some unique challenges. Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1998, the number of these mixed couples has soared. Improved relations between the countries have brought hundreds of Russians to the US, while Americans continue to travel to Russia for business, study and tourism. Dozens of dating and marriage agencies in the two countries are busy matching Russians with Americans. The internet, chat rooms, e-mail, and list servers for Russian-American couples and for people seeking spouses have revolutionised romance. Further, the end of the Soviet Union has eased travel restrictions, heartbreak over denied visas, and harassment of these couples. In response to these factors and to the hundreds of letters, phone calls and e-mails that poured in from couples who read the first edition and wanted to share their own stories, Dr. Visson has expanded this book with new material, including a chapter on marriages resulting from the phenomenal growth of agencies and Internet sites which introduce American men to Russian women. " . . . a detailed, intimate portrait of thr Russian-American husband and wife . . . a hghly readable and enjoyable choice for both scholarly interest and pleasurable reading." -- Slavic and East European Journal

Chapters are devoted to all of the practical aspects of Lillian Wald's service as its Director to an impoverished community: medical care, education, labor organization, social and cultural life, and above all, the children, the youth of new America upon whose heads rested all the dreams of a displaced and embattled generation.
