Fremd In Ihrem Land

In vielen westlichen Ländern sind rechte, nationalistische Bewegungen auf dem Vormarsch. Wie ist es dazu gekommen? Arlie Russell Hochschild reiste ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten, nach Louisiana, und suchte fünf Jahre lang das Gespräch mit ihren Landsleuten. Sie traf auf frustrierte Menschen, deren "Amerikanischer Traum" geplatzt ist; Menschen, die sich abgehängt fühlen, den Staat hassen und sich der rechtspopulistischen Tea-Party-Bewegung angeschlossen haben. Hochschild zeigt eine beunruhigende Entwicklung auf, die auch in Europa längst begonnen hat. Hochschilds Reportage ist nicht nur eine erhellende Deutung einer gespaltenen Gesellschaft, sondern auch ein bewegendes Stück Literatur. "Jeder, der das moderne Amerika verstehen möchte, sollte dieses faszinierende Buch lesen." Robert Reich "Ein kluges, respektvolles und fesselndes Buch." New York Times Book Review "Eine anrührende, warmherzige und souverän geschriebene, ungemein gut lesbare teilnehmende Beobachtung. ... Wer ihr Buch liest, versteht die Wähler Trumps, weil sie auf Augenhöhe mit ihnen und nicht über sie spricht." FAZ

The composition of the American population is rapidly changing from a white, male dominated society to one that is so diverse it will soon be without any single, dominant race, ethnicity, or gender. This book was created to provide a single source of easily accessible facts—obtained primarily from U.S. government agencies—comparing characteristics of race, ethnicity, and gender in graphic format to enhance comprehension, as only visual presentations can achieve. Virtually all major socio-economic topics are covered, including geographic distribution of populations, birth rates, health, wealth, poverty, income, employment, crime, incarcerations, social behaviors, education and political preferences. Included are past and future trends for many characteristics, as are comparisons between foreign-born, natural citizens, legal and undocumented immigrants. The dramatic demographic shifts in American society have provoked many false claims and distortions of facts that have fueled demagoguery, as occurred during the 2016 presidential campaign. Access to unvarnished facts about people different than you—but who are becoming your neighbors—is more critical now than ever. Special Features: Socio-economic characteristics between races, ethnicities, and genders in America Comparisons include: health, education, wealth, poverty, income, employment, crime, incarcerations, social behaviors, geographic distributions, and political preferences Includes foreign-born and natural citizens, lawful and undocumented immigrants All data are graphically displayed for easy visualization and comprehension Attributed sources for all data include web addresses to enable additional research Only factual data are presented without editorial comments or opinions Interesting facts found in America’s Diverse Population include: More than one-in-eight persons residing in the U.S. in 2015 were born elsewhere. Approximately one-in-four persons with "Green Cards" resided in California in 2013. Over three million temporary workers were admitted into the U.S. in 2014. In 2009 over two-thirds of convictions of undocumented immigrants were for violations of immigration law, and two percent for crimes against persons. Approximately one-of-three Black or African American children live in households with both married parents, compared with ninety-five percent of Asian households. In 2013 one-of-eight high school age Hispanic or Latino females reported they were forced to have sex. In 2015 ninety-seven percent of kindergarten teachers were women. Approximately one-half of all maids and housekeeping cleaners in 2015 were Hispanic or Latino women. In 2015, almost one-in-four Asian females held a Master's degree, the highest rate of any race or ethnicity. In 2013, the number of Non-Hispanic White children in the U.S., grades K–8, fell below fifty percent of students for the first time.
