9780814715840: Ethnic Peace in the American City : Building Community in Los Angeles and Beyond

The Los Angeles riot of 1992 marked America's first high-profile multiethnic civil unrest. Latinos, Asian Americans, whites, and African Americans were involved as both victims and assailants. Nearly half of the businesses destroyed were Korean American owned, and nearly half of the people arrested were Latino.

In the aftermath of the unrest, Los Angeles, with its extremely diverse population, emerged as a particularly useful site in which to examine race relations. Ethnic Peace in the American City documents the nature of contemporary inter-ethnic relations in the United States by describing the economic, political, and psychological dynamics of race relations in inner-city Los Angeles. Drawing from local as well as international examples, the authors present strategies such as coalition building, dispute resolution, and community organizing.

Moving beyond the stereotyped focus on negative interactions between minority groups such as Korean-owned businesses and the African American community, and countering the white-black or bi-racial paradigms of American race relations, the authors explore practical means by which ethnically fragmented neighborhoods nationwide can work together to begin to address their common concerns before tensions become explosive.

Jeannette Diaz-Veizades is an executive faculty member at the Saybrook Graduate School in San Francisco.

Review :

"All I know is that after making my way through this wide-ranging and incisive book, I will never listen to music, surf the net, send a greeting card, screen a film, watch TV, or take a photograph, let alone a trip, in quite the same way again."-American Jewish History,

"Shandler's mastery of the relevant scholarly literature, his penetrating eye, and his sharp ear for a telling anecdote make this volume fascinating and illuminating. It is a valuable balance to the many institutional histories on American Jewry or analyses of American Jewish thought. It is equally important as a model of how new methodologies can offer valuable insights into phenomena that are well known but rarely understood."-Scott Ury, "Religious Studies Review"

"In Jews, God, and Videotape, Shandler provides a fresh and fascinating account of the impact of technology on the religious life of American Jews during the last one hundred years."
-"Philadelphia Inquirer",

"The message that this richly theorized, well-researched, and crisply written book delivers to historians is that communication, no less than politics and economy, society and culture, can and should become a major venue of historical research." -Menahem Blondheim, "The Journal of American History"

"[An] insightful analysis of the impact of modern media on religious beliefs and practices."
-"Library Journal",
