Summary
"Understanding America is a comprehensive portrait of this complex nation: its values, institutions, and public policies; its successes and its challenges. In twenty new essays, the nation's top scholars draw on their extensive knowledge of American institutions to explain the most important and intriguing facets of American society. From the history and construction of race to the evolving American family to the debate surrounding immigration, these scholars offer their unparalleled critical insight into how, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, the American experiment has fared. The resulting picture is at once highly informative, unflinchingly analytical, and full of paradox."--BOOK JACKET
