Summary
This volume asks how two very different societies are responding to the tide of diversity that is being felt around the rich world. The authors mix social and scientific rigor with accessible charts in order to argue that injustice still blight lives of many U.K. and U.S. minorities -- particularly African Americans. They maintain that there are signs the new diversity strains community life and they feel that in both countries, public opinion is running irreversibly in favor of tolerance. That bodes well for the future -- and suggests a future British leader like the U.S.'s Barack Obama cannot be ruled out
