Founded by Walter Brown in 1946, the Boston Celtics are one of the two charter members of the NBA, along with the New York Knickerbockers, to play in their city of origin. They are also the most honored franchise in professional basketball history, with 16 world titles to date. The list of hall of fame players to wear Celtic green includes an impressive roster of Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, John Havlicek, Sam Jones, Tom Heinsohn, Dave Cowens, Larry Bird, and Kevin McHale--to name just a few. Under the guidance of legendary head coach Red Auerbach, the Celtics established a seemingly unbreakable record of consecutive championships, with eight straight from 1959 to 1966. They are one of the few powerhouse dynasties in North American sports. With a foreword by hall of famer Dave Cowens, The Celtics in Black and White tells the story of this dynamic franchise through more than 200 photographs, many published here for the first time.

What role should racial difference play in the American workplace? As a nation, we rely on civil rights law to address this question, and the monumental Civil Rights Act of 1964 seemingly answered it: race must not be a factor in workplace decisions. In After Civil Rights, John Skrentny contends that after decades of mass immigration, many employers, Democratic and Republican political leaders, and advocates have adopted a new strategy to manage race and work. Race is now relevant not only in negative cases of discrimination, but in more positive ways as well. In today's workplace, employers routinely practice "racial realism," where they view race as real--as a job qualification. Many believe employee racial differences, and sometimes immigrant status, correspond to unique abilities or evoke desirable reactions from clients or citizens. They also see racial diversity as a way to increase workplace dynamism. The problem is that when employers see race as useful for organizational effectiveness, they are often in violation of civil rights law. After Civil Rights examines this emerging strategy in a wide range of employment situations, including the low-skilled sector, professional and white-collar jobs, and entertainment and media. In this important book, Skrentny urges us to acknowledge the racial realism already occurring, and lays out a series of reforms that, if enacted, would bring the law and lived experience more in line, yet still remain respectful of the need to protect the civil rights of all workers.

"Drawing on unprecedented access and personal experiences that would not be possible for any reporter today, Shaughnessy takes us inside the legendary Larry Bird-led Celtics teams, capturing the camaraderie as they rose to dominate the NBA. Fans can witness the cockiness of Larry Bird (who once walked into an All Star Weekend locker room, announced that he was going to win the three-point contest, and did); the ageless athleticism of Robert Parish; the shooting skills of Kevin McHale; the fierce, self-sacrificing play of Bill Walton; and the playful humor of players like Danny Ainge, Cedric Cornbread Maxwell, and M.L. Carr."--
