'This book rewarded me with dark, dry chuckles on every page' Reni Eddo-Lodge 'Hilarious . . . This original approach to discussing race is funny, intellectual and timely' Independent 'The work of a true mastermind' Benjamin Zephaniah I learned early on that, for me as a black professional, to rise through the ranks and really attain power, I needed to adopt the most ruthless of mindsets possible: the mindset of the White Man who would tear your cheek from your face before he even considered turning his one first.

The United States military is often presented as a model of equal-opportunity employment. In this work, the author examines and challenges this assertion with respect to the Navy. Dunklin studies Navy claims of meritocracy and training processes, profiles the careers of eight senior enlisted African American servicemen, and examines barriers to African American inclusion. First-hand accounts and interviews provide insight into the coping mechanisms and struggles of African Americans in the Navy. The author concludes by offering suggestions to improve the Navy equal opportunity environment.

"The real value of Lakota Belief and Ritual is that it provides raw narratives without any pretension of synthesis or analysis, as well as insightful biographical information on the man who contributed more than any other individual to our understanding of early Oglala ritual and belief." Plains Anthropologist"In the writing of Indian history, historians and other scholars seldom have the opportunity to look at the past through 'native eyes' or to immerse themselves in documents created by Indians. For the Oglala and some of the other divisions of the Lakota, the Walker materials provide this kind of experience in fascinating and rich detail during an important transition period in their history." Minnesota History"This collection of documents is especially remarkable because it preserves individual variations of traditional wisdom from a whole generation of highly developed wicasa wakan (holy men). . . . Lakota Belief and Ritual is a wasicun (container of power) that can make traditional Lakota wisdom assume new life." American Indian Quarterly"A work of prime importance. . . . its publication represents a major addition to our knowledge of the Lakotas' way of life" Journal of American FolkloreRaymond J. DeMallie, director of the American Indian Studies Research Institute and a professor of anthropology at Indiana University, is the editor of James R. Walker's Lakota Society (1982) and of The Sixth Grandfather: Black Elk's Teachings Given to John G. Neihardt (1984, a Bison Book), both published by the University of Nebraska Press. Elaine A. Jahner, a professor of English at Dartmouth College, has edited Walker's Lakota Myth (1983), also a Bison Book.

This book was not written for everyone but for those that can accept the truth about what life in America has been like. The masses of the people in this country were led to believe in a dream, the American dream. The oppression by political leaders and exploitation by big businesses has created a life where the dream is difficult to achieve. The common people were told that education will be the key to economic success, that believing in God and attending church will be the producer of blessings in the toughest moments in life. The American people were promised in this dream that every American will be treated justly in the court of law, that every American will be given the opportunity to work and be paid a fair wage, that every American will have the right to be educated properly and adequately, that every American will be given the opportunity to achieve and live the American dream. But just as it was written in theory or as an idea, it remains an idea for the working-class poor; however, it has become a reality for just a few, while nearly the entire population of the minimum-wage workers is living an impoverish lifestyle. For those who can accept and handle the truth, this book is written for people like you and me.

A story of love, war and an incessant driving force of a territory that is trying to make itself ready for statehood, regardless of the consequences to local inhabitants. Descendants of early Spanish settlers, the Native Americans, already on the land, are forced to face the invasion of eastern immigration—taking their land where they once lived peaceably with each other. The Civil War brought southern sympathizers seeking gold from the Rocky Mountains that would aid their cause. The commingling of the different races rent deceit, hatred, terror and also love among these early pioneers, all of whom were seeking a better way of life—but disregarding the lives of early Spanish and Native Americans.

"These images reveal much about Red Cloud - from the height of his position as a tribal leader in the 1870s through his years as an effective and controversial statesman to his old age and death in the early twentieth century. Goodyear provides a fully drawn portrait of the renowned Lakota leader and his relationships with outsiders, particularly those who continually attempted to capture his likeness with a camera."--BOOK JACKET.
