Podcast with Author about America: Melting Pot or Multi-Culturalism?
Topic: The Melting Pot.
There’s an interesting new book called Out of the Melting Pot, Into the Fire: Multiculturalism in the World’s Past and America’s Future. The book is described thusly: “As it absorbs record numbers of new immigrants, the U.S. faces critical questions: is it better to promote a unifying, shared identity that transcends ethnic differences or to foster a multicultural salad of distinct group identities? Is it better to minimize ethnic distinctions or to accentuate them with diversity initiatives and ethnic preferences?” The author of Out of the Melting Pot, Into the Fire, Jens Heycke joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss these issues. https://www.encounterbooks.com/books/out-of-the-melting-pot/
