520    "Integration Nation takes readers on a spirited and 
       compelling cross-country journey, introducing us to the 
       people challenging America's xenophobic impulses by 
       welcoming immigrants and collaborating with the foreign-
       born as they become integral members of their new 
       communities. In Utah, we meet educators who connect newly 
       arrived Spanish-speaking students and U.S.-born English-
       speaking students, who share classrooms and learn in two 
       languages. In North Carolina, we visit the nation's 
       fastest-growing community-development credit union, 
       serving immigrants and U.S.- born depositors and helping 
       to lower borrowing thresholds and crime rates alike. In 
       recent years, politicians in a handful of local 
       communities and states have passed laws and regulations 
       designed to make it easier to deport unauthorized 
       immigrants or to make their lives so unpleasant that 
       they'd just leave. The media's unrelenting focus on these 
       ultimately self-defeating measures created the false 
       impression that these politicians speak for most of 
       America. They don't. Integration Nation movingly reminds 
       us that we each have choices to make about how to think 
       and act in the face of the rapid cultural transformation 
       that has reshaped the United States. Giving voice to 
       people who choose integration over exclusion, who opt for 
       open-heartedness instead of fear, Integration Nation is a 
       desperately needed road map for a nation still finding its
       way beyond anti-immigrant hysteria to higher ground"--
