This dynamic text covers the core areas of African American Studies: Foundations of the Discipline, History, Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, Economics, and the Arts and Humanities. The ever-expanding disciplines of Science and Technology—a prominent factor in shaping the future life experiences of African Americans—and the impact of the phenomenon of globalization are also covered. Anderson and Stewart also address and challenge issues such as the increasing role of popular culture as a socializing agent, guidance regarding strategic responses to contemporary challenges facing people of African descent, and the need to embrace indigenous cultural knowledge attained through visual and oral accounts that are outside the traditional boundaries of humanistic and scientific discourse. 515 pages. Index. Select bibliography. Paperback, 8 in x 10 in.
