"E Pluribus Unum": What Does it Mean? How Should We Respond?
Patrick, John J.
Michigan Social Studies Journal, v10 n1 p5-14 Spr 1998
Charts the intellectual history of competing conceptions of national unity, diversity, and ethnic identity. Explicates three models: monolithic integration (monocultural assimilation of diversity), pluralistic preservation (diversity and unity as equal values), and pluralistic integration (stressing consensus about core civic values while acknowledging the compatibilities and tensions regarding unity and diversity).
