What is America really like? The 20 chapters of this text offer a panoramic view of this huge country, from politics to culture and everything in between.

Formerly known as a “melting pot,” America is now perceived more as “vegetable soup.” What are the historical and social forces that have shaped this multicultural and multi-ethnic world leader? What kind of social and cultural problems is the country now facing? America is in the vanguard of a globalizing world, where increasing diversity confronts the desire for unity. Does this mean that America's problems will soon become commonplace elsewhere?
