One of the most distinctive features of the "American persona" is "a preoccupation and underlying concern in the United States with what is or is not `American.'" How far can an ethnic group in the United States go to maintain its identity before it trespasses into what is perceived as un-American terrain? This is the underlying theme of Lambert and Taylor's community based investigation which studies the attitudes of Americans toward ethnic diversity and intergroup relations. This study deals with the peculiar U.S. dichotomy of cultural diversity and assimilation.
This is a community-based investigation of the attitudes of Americans--some mainstream long-term residents and others who are first- or second-generation immigrants--toward ethnic diversity and intergroup relations.
