Immigrants, Minorities, and the Search for A Genuine Democracy

by kris bishop on January 13, 2010

Newcomers_bookcoverCheck out new release Newcomers, Outsiders, and Insiders for a look at how the arrival of “new minorities” has affected the efforts of long-standing U.S. minority groups–Blacks, Latinos, and Asian Pacific Americans–to gain equality through greater political representation and power. The authors predict that, for some time to come, the United States will function as a complex multiracial hierarchy, rather than as a genuine democracy.
