An eye-opening, unapologetic explanation of what "racial profiling" is in modern-day America: systematic targeting of communities and placing of suspicion on populations, on the basis of not only ethnicity but also certain places that are linked to the social identity of that group. • Offers a novel framework for understanding the problem of racial profiling that explains how profiling actually involves the intersection of race and space • Provides concrete solutions in the form of a civil rights restoration act that addresses the problem of "racial profiling" through a set of innovative community controls on the deployment and power of police • Constitutes essential reading for students, lawyers, journalists, and teachers interested in issues of race and ethnicity as well as general readers wanting to learn about racial profiling in American society

Probing essays that examine critical issues surrounding the United States's ever-expanding international cultural identity in the postcolonial eraDownload Plain Text versionAt the beginning of the twenty-first century, we may be in a "transnational" moment, increasingly aware of the ways in which local and national narratives, in literature and elsewhere, cannot be conceived apart from a radically new sense of shared human histories and global interdependence. To think transnationally about literature, history, and culture requires a study of the evolution of hybrid identities within nation-states and diasporic identities across national boundaries.Studies addressing issues of race, ethnicity, and empire in U.S. culture have provided some of the most innova-tive and controversial contributions to recent scholarship.Postcolonial Theory and the United States: Race, Ethnicity, and Literaturerepresents a new chapter in the emerging dialogues about the importance of borders on a global scale.This book collects nineteen essays written in the 1990s in this emergent field by both well established and up-and-coming scholars. Almost all the essays have been either especially written for this volume or revised for inclusion here.These essays are accessible, well-focused resources for college and university students and their teachers, displaying both historical depth and theoretical finesse as they attempt close and lively readings. The anthology includes more than one discussion of each literary tradition associated with major racial or ethnic communities. Such a gathering of diverse, complementary, and often competing viewpoints provides a good introduction to the cultural differences and commonalities that comprise the United States today.The volume opens with two essays by the editors: first, a survey of the ideas in the individual pieces, and, second, a long essay that places current debates in U.S. ethnicity and race studies within both the history of American studies as a whole and recent developments in postcolonial theory.Amritjit Singh, a professor of English and African American studies at Rhode Island College, is coeditor ofConversations with Ralph EllisonandConversations with Ishmael Reed(both from University Press of Mississippi). Peter Schmidt, a professor of English at Swarthmore College, is the author ofThe Heart of the Story: Eudora Welty's Short Fiction(University Press of Mississippi).

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.

Zunachst aus theologischem Erkenntnisstreben heraus entwickelt, wird die deutschsprachige Orientforschung im Laufe des 19. Jahrhunderts Teil der neuzeitlichen Universitat. Das Buch zeigt, auf welche Weise die Disziplin auf der Folie sprach- und geisteswissenschaftlicher Pramissen, Methoden und Zielen an Kontur gewinnt.Die Blutezeit der Beschaftigung mit Vorderasien vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg erklart sich auf dem Hintergrund der kolonialen Ambitionen des Deutschen Kaiserreichs. Sie geht einher mit weiteren Differenzierungen, jedoch kaum mit Revisionen der Problemstellungen.Der Ruckzug in die Studierstube nach der ephemeren Kolonialperiode, die Einschrankungen wahrend der wirtschaftlichen Probleme in der Weimarer Republik, die Restriktionen wahrend des "Dritten Reichs" und die Anforderungen durch den Zweiten Weltkrieg werden mit Hilfe unveroffentlichter Materialen aus Archiven und Gelehrtennachlassen rekonstruiert und illustriert.Ein biographischer Anhang informiert uber die Personen, die den Vorderen Orient wahrend der ersten Halfte des 20. Jahrhunderts zu ihrem Spezialgebiet gemacht haben.
