"Analyzes the current state of the country, orients the contemporary United States within its broader history, and explores the ways that Americans can--and must--live together peaceably despite these deeply engrained differences. Pluralism is one of the founding creeds of the United States--yet America's society and legal system continues to face deep, unsolved structural problems in dealing with differing cultural anxieties, and minority viewpoints. Inazu not only argues that it is possible to cohabitate peacefully in this country, but also lays out realistic guidelines for our society and legal system to achieve the new American dream through civic practices that value toleration over protest, humility over defensiveness, and persuasion over coercion"--Dust jacket.
