Strangers in the Land: Patterns of American Nativism, 1860-1925

#ad
#ad
Rutgers University Press #ad - He saw his work as part of a renewed interest in the study of nationalism following the national upheavals in the wake of the McCarthy hearings. He significantly moves beyond previous treatments of nativism, both in chronology and in interpretive sophistication. Higham admits being repelled by the nationalist delusions of the Cold War, again helping to explain why his study concentrates on seeking some explanation for the irrational and violent outbreaks.

Higham defines nativism as a defensive type of nationalism or an intense opposition to an internal minority on the grounds of the group's foreign connections. Thus, key for higham's argument is the power of ideas in shaping individual behavior and thereby shaping history. Strangers in the land is, then, a history of public opinion, whose purpose is to show how nativism evolved in society and in action.

This text is an absolute must-read for anyone seeking to understand American nativism and the darker side of nationalism. Higham seeks to explain what could inflame xenophobia and who resisted it. Surely higham's mentor at the university of Wisconsin, intellectual historian Merle Curti, influenced Higham's approach in seeking to examine the power of nationalism as an idea.

Strangers in the Land: Patterns of American Nativism, 1860-1925 #ad - Higham's work stands as the seminal work in the history of American nativism. By defining nativism as a set of attitudes or a state of mind, he sets the course for his book as tracing "trace an emotionally charged impulse" rather than "an actual social process or condition. As he argues that the ideological content of nativism remained consistent, he uses emotional intensity as a measure to trace in detail public opinion from the relative calm following the Civil War to the Johnson-Reed act of 1924 that severely limited European immigration.

Notes of a Native Son

#ad
#ad
Beacon Press #ad - With a keen eye, he examines everything from the significance of the protest novel to the motives and circumstances of the many black expatriates of the time, from his home in “The Harlem Ghetto” to a sobering “Journey to Atlanta. Notes of a native son inaugurated baldwin as one of the leading interpreters of the dramatic social changes erupting in the United States in the twentieth century, and many of his observations have proven almost prophetic.

He was also one of the few writing on race at the time who addressed the issue with a powerful mixture of outrage at the gross physical and political violence against black citizens and measured understanding of their oppressors, which helped awaken a white audience to the injustices under their noses.

In an age of black lives matter, movies, james baldwin's essays on life in Harlem, the protest novel, and African Americans abroad are as powerful today as when they were first written. Writing as an artist, and social critic, activist, Baldwin probes the complex condition of being black in America.

Notes of a Native Son #ad - Naturally, this combination of brazen criticism and unconventional empathy for white readers won Baldwin as much condemnation as praise. With documentaries like i am not your Negro bringing renewed interest to Baldwin's life and work, Notes of a Native Son serves as a valuable introduction. Written during the 1940s and early 1950s, when baldwin was only in his twenties, the essays collected in Notes of a Native Son capture a view of black life and black thought at the dawn of the civil rights movement and as the movement slowly gained strength through the words of one of the most captivating essayists and foremost intellectuals of that era.

Notes is the book that established Baldwin’s voice as a social critic, and it remains one of his most admired works.
