Summary
"In Diversity Advantage, G. Pascal Zachary provides a provocative roadmap to the new civilization arising out of sweeping shifts in the world economy. He reveals that the key new determinants for any nation's economic, political, and cultural success are, surprisingly, a diverse population and a "mongrel" sense of self. Roaming the globe, Zachary shows how the rise of new forms of identity and migration are helping to determine exactly who will win and lose in the next century. Zachary's thesis isn't just about nations but about individuals, too. In his tour of a new global civilization, we meet a fascinating gallery of successful characters who possess an intriguing mix of "roots" and "wings." Strong enough to know who they are, they are nevertheless always adding skills and traits from around the world - and in the process bestowing the gifts of creativity and social capital on the cities and states that they call home."--Jacket
