4 Roots Too : White Ethnic Revival in Post-Civil Rights America Jacobson, Matthew Frye
Cambridge, Massachusetts USA Harvard University Press 2006 0674018982 / 9780674018983 Hard Copy Near Fine Near Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Inscribed By Author
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA, 2006. Inscribed by author on title page as follows: "To David, With immense admirations, and with thanks for all you have done and inspired. [signed] Matt 2/06". Book and dust jacket are in Near Fine condition. (Note: ISBN number on the reverse side of the title page appears to have a typographical error. It says 0674108982. The actual ISBN is apparently 0674018982.) From the dust jacket: "In the 1950s, America was seen as a vast melting pot in which white ethnic affiliations were on the wane and a common American identity was the norm. Yet by the 1970s, these white ethnics mobilized around a new version of the epic tale of plucky immigrants making their way in the New World through the sweat of their brow. Although this turn to ethnicity was for many an individual search for familial and psychological identity, Roots Too establishes a broader white social and political consensus arising in response to the political language of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements. In the wake of the Civil Rights movement, whites sought renewed status in the romance of Old World travails and New World fortunes. Ellis Island replaced Plymouth Rock as the touchstone of American nationalism. The entire culture embraced the myth of the indomitable white ethnics -- who they were and where they had come from -- in literature, film, theater, art, music, and scholarship. The language and symbols of hardworking, self-reliant, and ultimately triumphant European immigrants have exerted tremendous force on political movements and public policy debates from affirmative action to contemporary immigration. In order to understand how white primacy in American life survived the withering heat of the Civil Rights movement and multiculturalism, Matthew Frye Jacobson argues for a full exploration of the meaning of the white ethnic revival and the uneasy relationship between inclusion and exclusion that it has engendered in our conceptions of national belonging."

With brilliant insight he delves deep into the roots of America's shifting political tide, shows us what ideas and platforms have helped shape -- and change -- the feelings of today's voter, and thus allows us to see not only the making of a President, but the remaking of America itself."
