Beschreibung

Pulera contends that race will matter to Americans during the twenty-first century because of visible differences--the single most important factor shaping intergroup relations, in conjunction with the social, cultural, economic, and political ramifications that accompany them. America will change from a predominantly white country to one where nonwhites are increasingly numerous and consequently more visible. The author concludes on a note of cautious optimism as he explores whether the visible differences dividing Americans are reconcilable.

Pressestimmen

"Dominic Pulera, a rare self-trained scholar, proves his salt in Visible Differences. Engaging anecdotes open each of the complex and nuanced chapters of this extraordinary book.. Pulera clearly adopts a social justice stance, but unlike many works on the dicey subject of race, he lays out multiple perspectives well and then fearlessly sets them beside one another. His clear prose masks the exquisitely detailed depth and thorough scholarly treatment. Scholars may enjoy the endnotes as much as the text. Readers new to the subject find a treasure trove of insight and information on each page. For example, he successfully explains the arcane processes involved in the census and makes clear why they matter for race relations in the U.S. He similarly unpacks the court cases that set precedence for today s conditions. Uncommon in breadth of coverage, the range of his sources cutting across academic fields and drawing from a host of news accounts, think tank reports, site visits, and interviews makes Visible Differences a must read. Masterful. A new public intellectual enters the arena of race. His ideas should become part of the national conversation on race." Georgia Duerst-Lahti, Beloit College
