Overview


Bring your learning to life with compelling images, media and text from National Geographic. CULTURE IDENTITY IN AMERICA will help you develop a clearer understanding of the world around you through engaging content. The fifteen articles gathered in this single-themed reader offer an exceptionally direct entree to issues surrounding identity and culture in the 21st-century United States. As the National Geographic Society's writers and photographers investigate the physical and cultural characteristics of specific locations throughout the country, they put faces on forces of assimilation, diversification, and make the multifarious realities of globalization palpable, concrete. Introducing readers to people and customs that may seem foreign, they shed new light on familiar American themes as well.
