This is the only comprehensive psychoanalytic study of white racism. It integrates historical, social and psychodynamic perspectives to explore Kovel's definition that 'far from being the simple delusion of a bigoted and ignorant minority, racism is a set of beliefs whose structure arises from the deepest levels of our lives - from the fabric of assumptions we make about the world, ourselves and others and from the patterns of fundamental social activities.'

Topics with racial implications have been hotly debated in the psychological literature for most of this century and are often in the news. Graham Richards takes a historical look at how the concepts of "race" and "racism" emerged within the discipline and charts the underlying premises of some famous studies in their social and political contexts. No-one is allowed to be objective in this arena, as opponents will always argue that they are not. This account is bound therefore to be controversial and excite interest whether or not readers agree with Richards' stance.

Drawn from the John Bowlby Memorial Conference, the theme of this book addresses the often hidden and ignored subject of attachment, race and culture. Can our individual narratives in relation to race, culture and attachment be unmasked in the therapeutic dyad to reveal our human connectedness? The contributors explore how the conscious and unconscious meanings of therapists' and clients' racial and cultural identities shape the dialogue between them. How this emerges for both therapist and client in their work together is illustrated in clinical accounts.Contributors: Kimberlyn Leary; Farhad Dalal; Barbara Ashton; Cascia Davis; Zack Eleftheriadou; Irris Singer; and Kate White

Overcoming Zionism

creating a single democratic state in Israel/Palestine

Author: Joel Kovel

Publisher: Pluto Press

ISBN: 9780745325705

Category: History

Page: 299

Joel Kovel argues that the inner contradictions of Zionism have led Israel to a "state-sponsored racism" fully as incorrigible as that of apartheid South Africa and deserving of the same resolution. He argues that only a path toward single-state secular democracy can provide the justice essential to healing the wounds of the Middle East. Kovel is well-known as a writer on the Middle East conflict. In this book he draws on his detailed knowledge to show that Zionism and democracy are essentially incompatible. He offers a thoughtful account of the emergence and disintegration of Zionism that integrates psychological, political, cultural, economic, and ideological levels. Ultimately, Kovel argues, a two-state solution is hopeless as it concedes too much to the regressive forces of nationalism, wherein lie the roots of continued conflict.

The image of the West looms large in the American imagination. Yet the history of American Jewry and particularly of American Jewish women—has been heavily weighted toward the East. Jewish Women Pioneering the Frontier Trail rectifies this omission as the first full book to trace the history and contributions of Jewish women in the American West. In many ways, the Jewish experience in the West was distinct. Given the still-forming social landscape, beginning with the 1848 Gold Rush, Jews were able to integrate more fully into local communities than they had in the East. Jewish women in the West took advantage of the unsettled nature of the region to “open new doors” for themselves in the public sphere in ways often not yet possible elsewhere in the country. Women were crucial to the survival of early communities, and made distinct contributions not only in shaping Jewish communal life but outside the Jewish community as well. Western Jewish women's level of involvement at the vanguard of social welfare and progressive reform, commerce, politics, and higher education and the professions is striking given their relatively small numbers. This engaging work—full of stories from the memoirs and records of Jewish pioneer women—illuminates the pivotal role these women played in settling America's Western frontier.
