The White Man's Indian: Images of the American Indian from Columbus to the Present
"A compelling and definitive history...of racist preconceptions in white behavior toward native Americans."—Leo Marx, The New York Times Book Review

Columbus called them "Indians" because his geography was faulty. But that name and, more important, the images it has come to suggest have endured for five centuries, not only obscuring the true identity of the original Americans but serving as an ideological weapon in their subjugation. Now, in this brilliant and deeply disturbing reinterpretation of the American past, Robert Berkhofer has written an impressively documented account of the self-serving stereotypes Europeans and white Americans have concocted about the "Indian": Noble Savage or bloodthirsty redskin, he was deemed inferior in the light of western, Christian civilization and manipulated to its benefit. A thought-provoking and revelatory study of the absolute, seemingly ineradicable pervasiveness of white racism, The White Man's Indian is a truly important book which penetrates to the very heart of our understanding of ourselves.

"A splendid inquiry into, and analysis of, the process whereby white adventurers and the white middle class fabricated the Indian to their own advantage. It deserves a wide and thoughtful readership."—Chronicle of Higher Education

Sociology
This text, by using five key concepts (social structure, culture, power, functional integration and social action), aims to show students the diversity of sociology, while avoiding the pitfall of presenting sociology as though it were divided by competing perspectives. This approach encourages critical thinking that shows how sociologists can both share an approach and still see different dimensions of a problem. This edition emphasizes cross-cultural understanding and social issues, exploring the relationship between global and local. It shows students how international factors shape life in the US and how social action in the US shapes international issues like the drug trade or the state of the environment. A new chapter ("The Third World") gives examples of how social action is bringing about development in South Korea. A major new section on the environment discusses rain forests, air pollution and water pollution. The book aims to show how research and analysis informs the choices that people face both in everyday life and in public policy. Its focus on "visual sociology" teaches students how to look at the world around them through new eyes by presenting graphic images as a basic part of sociology. An instructor's manual is also available (0-07-037939-4).
