Review quote

Important and entirely admirable....Gordon's review of theories of Anglo-conformity, the melting pot, and cultural pluralism is the best I have ever seen. Specialists in intergroup relations will find Gordon's book a most useful addition to their personal bookshelves and an indispensable newcomer to their pedagogical repertoire. * American Sociological Review *
