America's Newcomers and the Dynamics of Diversity provides a picture of how immigration has actually affected the United States, while refuting common misconceptions and predicting how it might affect us in the future. Frank D. Bean and Gillian Stevens show how, on the whole, immigration has been beneficial for the United States. America's Newcomers and the Dynamics of Diversity concludes by showing that the increased racial and ethnic diversity caused by immigration may be helping to blur the racial divide in the United States, transforming the country from a biracial to multi-ethnic and multi-racial society.
