Desegregation Resistance and Readiness

Desegregation Resistance and Readiness

Author: Melvin Marvin Tumin Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/06/2019

The most critical dimension of desegregation in our region is found in the attitudes of members of the dominant white communities. Melvin Tumin, a sociology professor at Princeton University, and eleven associates...have done a first-rate job mapping this vital dimension in an opinion study of citizens of Guilford County, North Carolina...the best effort yet to plumb citizens' attitudes on this agonizing modern problem. --Reading Guide, Law Library of University of Virginia. Originally published in 1958. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
