These titles are all part of the Routledge Revivals program. The program is designed to reissue out-of-print and unavailable titles written by leading academic scholars.
A professor of Culture, Media and Sport at Staffordshire University’s School of Health, E. Cashmore previously worked as a Professor of Sociology at the University of Tampa, Florida, as well as a Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Hong Kong. Cashmore studied for his degree in Sociology at Newcastle upon Tyne Polytechnic. After completing his masters at the University of Toronto, he returned to England and began work on his PhD thesis on the rastafari movement in England in the late 1970s. This became the subject for his first published work, Rastaman, which is just one of the titles to be reissued by Routledge Revivals.
The remaining titles within the revived E. Cashmore collection include:
Black Youth in Crisis – This title studies the position of young Afro-Caribbean people in the 1980s and how they were unduly hit by high unemployment, appeared high in crime statistics and were under achieving in schools.
Black Sportsmen – This books examines the affect that race has had on sportspeople – ranging from Olympic athletes to school children.
The Logic of Racism – Studies 800 individuals from all areas of society to gain an understanding of race relations, combining real life experiences with a commentary from Cashmore.
Having To – Interviews more than 200 single parent men and women from across the UK, giving an account of life in one parent families.
United Kingdom? – Examines the divisions present in Britain following the Second World War; namely class, race and gender. The book looks at issues of conflict and unity in the period from the war up until the late 1980s.
Out of Order? - Considers the challenging relationships that have existed between Afro-Caribbean people and the police in both Britain and the USA.
...and there was telev!s!on – Is, by Cashmore’s own admission, the odd book out in the series. The book looks at the affect that television has had on our lives and examines how the evidence against television is unfounded.
These titles have wide appeal across a number of subject areas, crossing over into a range of areas of interest for students and researchers, including Sociology, Religion, Race and Ethnic Studies, Criminology and Media Studies.
