Ronald Takaki did a great job in this book. What first hit me was his analysis of Herman Melville's Moby Dick.
Ronald Takaki did a great job in this book. I had learned about Moby Dick and had read about Moby Dick. I even read the novel. I had very much enjoyed other novels by Melville but was not all that keen on Moby Dick. But Takaki made a connection between Meville's Moby Dick and my education in philosophy, history and the social sciences. But the big surprise for me is that no advanced sociological theorist will feel that he or she is wasting money either!
This pathbreaking work offers a cohesive study of the foundations of race and culture in America.

This pathbreaking work offers a cohesive study of the foundations of race and culture in America. In a new epilogue, Takaki argues that the social health of the United States rests largely on the ability of Americans of all races and cultures to build on an established and positive legacy of cross-cultural cooperation and understanding in the coming 21st century.

Race and Culture in 19th-Century America. Observing that by 2050 all Americans will be minorities, Takaki urges us to ask ourselves: Will America fulfill the promise of equality or will America retreat into its "iron cages" and resist diversity, allowing racial conflicts to divide and possibly even destroy America as a nation? Incisive and provocative, Iron Cages is an essential resource for students of ethnic history and important reading for anyone interested in the history of race relations in America.
