Abstract:

The US is being transformed. Little follows millions of 21st-century pioneers to a new frontier in the West. In the sprawling new cities of the Sun Belt states, he chronicles the people and places that have turbo-charged...and redefined... the American dream. This new America will not be defined by political parties but is being shaped by the millions of immigrants due to arrive in coming years, the millions of Americans who are about to come of age, and the millions who have already followed their destiny to a sun-kissed frontier out west. Here we find suburban communities larger than our biggest cities, called 'galactic cities', 'edge cities,' 'penturbia', and 'urban galaxies.' The New America reveals an historic transformation and the economic crisis that threatens to engulf it. The New America poignantly contrasts the Moses generation (with Frontier values that drove people to new landscapes) to the Joshua generation as they settle the new Promised Land.
