Overview

Tragic relations between African Americans and Korean Americans began when the two cultures came together without having a sense of communion or a mutual understanding. In other words, this tragic relationship is the product of severe communication and cultural gaps. Socio-Cultural Conflict between African American and Korean American is the first book to base an integrated treatment of the relation between the two cultures with in-depth theorizing, survey, and analyses. First, this book identifies the nature of relations between African Americans and Korean Americans by investigating the cognitive roots of negative perceptions and some of the structural problems. Second, it explores the socio-economic and cultural reasons for this racial conflict. Third, it examines the impact of various media messages about multicultural relations and portrayals of both African Americans and Korean Americans. And finally, it suggests possible communicative strategies to promote and enhance race relations. This book will be useful to college students, and interesting to anyone concerned over racial and ethnic studies, as well as intercultural communications.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
If underlying hostility between African Americans and Korean Americans in Los Angeles were not at the base of the rioting some years back, the commercial media certainly used what there was to sidetrack viewers from the Rodney King verdict. Here scholars of communications apply in-depth theorizing, survey, and analysis to examine the underpinnings of the intercultural relations, investigating the cognitive roots of negative perceptions and some of the structural problems. They also look at socio-economic and cultural factors, the impact of various media portrayals of both groups, and possible strategies for enhancing relations<-->drawn of course from communications.
