Barnes and Noble say:

"Immigrants have always adopted America's ideological principles and striven to become "American". But now there is a war against the whole notion of assimilation; newcomers are encouraged to maintain their own separate cultural identity. In the tradition of Arthur Schlesinger's "The Disuniting of America", this common-sense manifesto promotes renewing the assimilation ethic in America."
