Overview

The Atlas of American Diversity illustrates racial and ethnic variance in America today and probes the issues that affect diverse groups. Immigration and migration, socioeconomic status, health, crime, language, and politics are examined as they relate to various racial and ethnic subjects. Color maps and charts provide the scholar, student, or policy analyst with easily digestible statistical information and references. These graphical representations highlight conditions and trends not readily observable by reading tabular information. The assertion that 'a picture is worth a thousand words' is true, especially in contemporary society, where people are deluged with incomprehensible statistics. The Atlas of American Diversity presents a clear view of information about, and issues confronting, America's eclectic population. Includes over 200 maps, tables and charts
