"Hailing from across the ideological spectrum, the contributors to Reinventing the Melting Pot include distinguished social scientist, prize-winning journalists, and fiction writers-thinkers like Nathan Glazer, Herbert Gans, John McWhorter, Michael Barone, Pete Hamill, and Stanley Crouch. They consider every aspect of the issue: from how today's new arrivals are different than yesterday's to how immigrant businesses are faring in the Houston suburbs. Running through their essays is a single, common theme: although ethnicity plays a more important role now than ever before, today's newcomers can and will become Americans and enrich our national life-reinventing the melting pot and reminding us all just what it is we have in common."--Jacket.
