The premise of this book is that we can learn from our history, apply new knowledge, and break the cycle of racism.
Racism has been at the center of social life for all of American history. There is no simple cure. It has gone undiagnosed, wrongly diagnosed, and inadequately treated for centuries. One of the most important lessons of that history is that racism will not just wither away. Racism must be accurately diagnosed and then intentionally treated. The good news, and the premise of this book, is that we can learn from our history, apply new knowledge, and break the cycle of disease. We can--and must--confront racism today to realize the civil rights dream.

This book discusses, in three parts, the differences in perspective between (and among) people and polities regarding ecology. The volume suggests that detailed microstudies of communities, societies, and cultures are invaluable for understanding and solving concrete, real-world problems.
Section one concentrates on ecology. Section two focuses on exchange transactions and relations in a variety of situations and settings. Papers in section three share a concern with individual and group adaptations to certain conditions of life. All of the chapters in the volume are connected by a shared underlying theme: the elucidation of differences in perspective between (and among) people and polities.
This four-volume set is an exhaustive study of American film history from its late-nineteenth-century origins to the present day. Extremely comprehensive in its scope, the approach taken here is one of selected topics rather than encyclopedic entries.
