About this title


The 1990 Pulitzer Prize-winning author of And Their Children After Them presents four Californians--Black, White, Asian, Latino--and their search fo r a new center in the shrill immigration debate, and how it can guide the country. Graphs, maps.
From the Hardcover edition.


As of 1998, whites are a minority in the state of California. Part of the state's response to its increasing multiculturalization is rooted in a conservative backlash that has launched successful voter initiatives against bilingual education, affirmative action programs, and the extension of public services to illegal immigrants. On the other hand, Latino voting rates have more than doubled, establishing a new, unignorable electoral bloc, and nearly one out of every five children born in California in 1996 came from a multiracial family.

These points are all worth mentioning because history shows us that where California goes, the rest of the United States will eventually follow. But while most of the political debate over the state's transformation has been marked by extremism on both sides, Pulitzer-winning journalist Dale Maharidge has chosen to talk to the ordinary people--white, black, Latino, and Asian--who are quietly creating the California of tomorrow. The Coming White Minority is a remarkable work of social journalism that combines intimate portraits with expansive history lessons; what Maharidge has to say about Californian society will prove illuminating for all Americans.
