The updated and expanded fourth edition of Diversity in America addresses key controversial topics generating debate in US society today. The book answers these and many other questions by using history and sociology to shed light on socially constructed myths. Vincent N. Parrillo takes the reader through different American eras, beginning with the indigenous populations and continuing through colonial times, the industrial age, the information age and today. The book uses intergenerational comparisons and extrapolation of present trends into future probabilities to offer the reader a holistic analytic commentary to provide additional helpful insights and understanding.

About the Author:

Vincent N. Parrillo, Professor and Graduate Director at William Patterson University, is an internationally recognized expert in the field of immigration and multiculturalism. He has spoken on these topics on numerous occasions throughout Asia, Canada, Europe, and the United States to government officials and to public and university audiences under sponsorship of the Department of State’s US Information Agency (USIA) and International Information Program (IIP). He is the executive producer and writer of two award-winning PBS television documentaries: Smokestacks and Steeples: A Portrait of Paterson (1992) and Ellis Island: Gateway to America (1991).

Review:

“Anyone can pick up this book and learn from it. It is like reading a good story rather than [reading] an educational text.”
―Leigh A. Willis, University of Georgia

"The book provides a useful overview of U.S. racial and ethnic diversity and its development over time, introduces some sociological themes (e.g. assimilation, pluralism), and touches upon several others (e.g. the role of economic factors in immigration)....Indeed, this book is exactly what it claims to be: an accessible account of diversity in the United States, a nice, short primer on American immigration history, assimilation and pluralism, and related concepts.”
―Teaching Sociology
