Abstract:

Citizenship in the United States has changed drastically and for the worse. Our desire to acknowledge diversity has evolved into a willingness to value it over the shared goals and vision of the American people, which in turn has led to what Georgie Anne Geyer, a prominent syndicated columnist and one of our first woman foreign correspondents, terms the Balkanization of America. Anchoring her points with exhaustive research, interviews, and the testimony of people on both sides of currently explosive issues, Geyer shows us a nation in turmoil over illegal immigration, non-citizen voting, and bilingualism - and in so doing, she shows us a nation that has become more concerned with individual rights and individual identity than with the common good.
