About the Author:

Ronald Fernandez is Professor of Sociology in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Central Connecticut State University.

From Publishers Weekly:

Fernandez, a professor of sociology in the criminal justice department at Central Connecticut State, discusses the impact of immigration on America's economy and culture, proposing that rampant racial bigotry, rather than the unchecked influx of immigrants, is what threatens to tear society apart. After covering the history of U.S. immigration law, the economic role of immigrant labor in maintaining large-scale agriculture, and the cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean, Fernandez contends that as long as whites are the "designer originals," while the rest of the population are "knockoffs," immigrants will not be assimilated into U.S. culture. Dedicated to his grandson, "a fantastic fusion of Columbian, French, Irish, Japanese and Spanish heritages," Fernandez's book suggests that the prejudice that sustains the dominance of whites can be undone by racial mixing, ultimately making Americans "one race, united in peace and driven by our desire to celebrate a nation of all-American fusions." Utopian perhaps and confrontational certainly, but definitely thought provoking.

Book Description The University of Michigan Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For the first time in U.S. history, the black-white dichotomy that historically has defined race and ethnicity is being challenged, not by a small minority, but by the fastest-growing and arguably most vocal segment of the increasingly diverse American population - Mexicans, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Indians, Arabs, and many more - who are breaking down and recreating the very definitions of race. Drawing on interviews with hundreds of Americans who don t fit conventional black or white categories, the author invites us to empathize with these doubles and to understand why they represent our best chance to throw off the strictures of the black-white division.
