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

Editorial Reviews

Journal of American Ethnic History
Readers searching for social and economic details about American ethnic groups will likely find something of value in this work, for the authors have compiled a great deal of data from the 1990 census and a few other sources.
— Eugene Turner, California State University, Northridge

The Atlas should be quite useful for historians of the American West who wish to assess the region's demographic characteristics for the late 20th century.
