This important new volume analyzes relations among America's
minority groups, specifically the prospects of political coalitions
among those usually unrelated groups: African Americans,
Asian-Americans, Latinos, Jews, Arab-Americans, and Native
Americans. At the end of the 20th century, the United States is
faced with a situation where minority groups are no longer
assimilating but rather are moving toward separate mini-societies,
complete with separate languages, cultures, and economies. Even if
society accepts the notion that cultural pluralism is consistent
with democratic principles, the possibility of political
hyperpluralism (endless and nonproductive conflicts among groups)
is disturbing. This volume, therefore, attempts to address the
concerns, examining the background of minority organizations,
voting behavior issues, and coalitional possibilities. This volume
will be of interest to scholars and students alike in American
government and ethnic and minority politics.
