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.

`Settler societies' are those in which Europeans have settled and become politically dominant over indigenous people, and where a heterogenous society has developed in class, ethnic and racial terms. They offer a unique prism for understanding the complex relations of gender, race, ethnicity and class in contemporary societies. Unsettling Settler Societies brings together a distinguished cast of contributors to explore these relations in both material and discursive terms. They look at the relation between indigenous and settler//immigrant populations, focusing in particular on women's conditions and politics. The book examines how the process of development of settler societies, and the positions of indigenous and

Although its early films featured racial caricatures and exclusively Caucasian heroines, Disney has, in recent years, become more multicultural in its filmic fare and its image. From Aladdin and Pocahontas to the Asian American boy Russell in Up, from the first African American princess in The Princess and the Frog to “Spanish–mode” Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story 3, Disney films have come to both mirror and influence our increasingly diverse society. This essay collection gathers recent scholarship on representations of diversity in Disney and Disney/Pixar films, not only exploring race and gender, but also drawing on perspectives from newer areas of study, particularly sexuality/queer studies, critical whiteness studies, masculinity studies and disability studies. Covering a wide array of films, from Disney’s early days and “Golden Age” to the Eisner era and current fare, these essays highlight the social impact and cultural significance of the entertainment giant.
