Recent demographic changes have sparked debate about the civic health of American democracy. Democracy requires people of different backgrounds to be disposed toward working together, and it requires 'little-noticed meeting places' where neighbors interact with each other, share their thinking, and address common problems. As issues of ethnic and social diversity become increasingly foregrounded, social scientists find pervasive social distrust and civic withdrawal in racially and ethnically heterogeneous communities, whether in big cities (Los Angeles) or small (Yakima, WA). In this book, Yi argues that increasing diversity can revitalize social and civic connectedness if our institutions rise up to the challenge of finding common ground and shared enterprise for people of different backgrounds. He highlights two types of organizational actors in the USA. One type renews and adapts longstanding religious, cultural, and civic traditions to a dynamic, multiethnic society. The second type attempts to introduce Americans to the many religious and cultural traditions from outside the United States. These tendencies point to a dynamic, 'many-stranded' model of liberal-plural democracy, which fosters and benefits from a variety of group affiliations and types of engagement. Organizations that combine internal, authoritative community with external, plural outreach, such as some evangelical mega-churches and karate schools, connect people across racial and economic divides. In these bridging organizations, people find a sense of unity among diversity; they get to know each other as individuals, rather than as representatives of disliked groups. Using fieldwork on churches, karate schools, and other organizations in a racially mixed, Chicago Southside neighborhood as well as a broader analysis of race and religion in the 1972D1998 General Social Survey, Yi combines classical democratic theory with compelling personal stories and rigorous empirical analysis. God and Karate in the Southside is the first book to analyze the intersection between race, religion, and martial arts in the United States. It is a mustDread for scholars interested in issues of community diversity and civic democracy.

Updated edition of Moo Duk Kwan founder Hwang Kee's Volume 1 text book out of print since 2010 and has become very hard to find. This revised and updated edition is an Autographed Collector's Limited Edition of Hwang Kee's Volume One textbook and is sequentially numbered and personally autographed by Hwang Kee's appointed successor, Moo Duk Kwan® president, H.C. Hwang, Kwan Jang Nim.This is Hwang Kee's first volume on the classic Korean martial art of tang soo do and the Soo Bahk Do® martial art system as taught in Hwang Kee's Moo Duk Kwan® martial art schools. It is the most complete text on basic unarmed martial artistry in print. This volume contains a general history of the martial arts, as well as history of Hwang Kee's tang soo do and Soo Bahk Do® martial art systems as interpreted from the only known indigenous Korean martial art techniques documented in original instructional scrolls found in the ancient manuscript "Moo Yei Do Bo Tong Ji" dating from the 17th century and referred to as "su bak" or "su bahk ki" (or hee). Anyone, whether an active practitioner or interested observer, will find more fundamental factual knowledge of the martial arts here than in any other single source. For example, the reader will find Newton's principles of motion applied to the human body. This is the first time that such scientific theory has been related to martial arts practice. This volume is the basic reference text for tang soo do as taught by Moo Duk Kwan® Founder Grandmaster Hwang Kee in his schools. All basic move- ments, striking points, principles and the first nine forms (Hyungs) are described both in words and in pictures. No martial arts library can be complete without this book and no serious student of martial artistry can ignore the information contained in this book.
