Social Science and Public Policy: Diversity in America.
Wood, Peter
Society, v40 n4 p60-67 May-Jun 2003
Examines diversity using Martin Luther King, Jr.'s metaphor of human unity, "the single garment of destiny," noting diversity's uniqueness in viewing America as individual groups, some of which have historically been denied privileges. Calls diversity a political doctrine that asserts that some social categories deserve compensatory privileges in light of historical and current prejudicial treatment. Notes the absence of diversity as a positive principle in founding documents. (SM)
