Donna Dempster-McClain. Published by: Cornell University Press. This book, in an effort to provide a fresh look at diversity, inequality, and community in American society, offers a sociological perspective on the challenges that contemporary intergroup relations pose for life in the twenty-first century. Diversity and inequality stand at the center of contemporary public policy debates. Can we have one without the other? Will greater diversity accompanying recent changes in the pace and character of immigration benefit or harm the nation?

The recent American Chemical Society national meeting in Denver was unlike any other that I had attended. The use of the notion of "homosexual community" has been common for many decades in North American and European countries. The difference was not the meeting itself. From an initially descriptive category, the "homosexual community" has gradually evolved into a "political fiction"

There is, I submit, no more relevant question for society at large, hence no more relevant question for us in our own social microcosm.

A Nation Divided : Diversity, Inequality, and Community in American Society. The United States will enter the twenty-first century with an increasingly diverse, unequal, and divided population. Longstanding tensions persist between ethnic groups, rich and poor, and immigrants and the native-born. New sources of strain involve sexual and gender minorities, those who possess alternate family forms, and white and nonwhite immigrants, as well as the widening gulf between rich and poor Americans.

The United States will enter the twenty-first century with an increasingly diverse, unequal, and divided population. Longstanding tensions persist between ethnic groups, rich and poor, and immigrants and the native-born. New sources of strain involve sexual and gender minorities, those who possess alternate family forms, and white and nonwhite immigrants, as well as the widening gulf between rich and poor Americans.

A Nation Divided offers a fresh approach to these controversial issues. In this volume, leading social scientists explore the potentially explosive combination of diversity and inequality. Using the latest theory and research, the authors show how different groups become socially and economically unequal and how such patterns of "durable inequality" affect national stability. They also discuss strategies for reducing durable inequality and creating social harmony. Their contributions address the changing demography of diversity and inequality and the interplay of diversity, inequality, and community in educational institutions, the military, the family, popular culture, and religion.

Very nice looking, and seemingly well-made. I put it together in about 20 minutes, and we are using it for crystal glass storage in the dining room.

A Nation Divided separates itself from much social science research that really is social science fiction. The editors have produced a significant, cutting-edge piece of work. As Lauderdale (following in the steps of Will Rogers) noted long ago, unfortunately the picture of the U.S. as a melting pot is unbridled, political rhetoric. The U.S. is a tossed-salad in good times and may become a buring pot in this century, unless toleration for diversity becomes respect for diversity. This book suggests that we must first understand longstanding tensions and their persistance or superficial political band-aids will continue to feed the fire.
