Editorial Reviews

Review

"In an area that has generated more heat than light, Uslaner provides piercing insights and a masterly overview of a complex and sprawling literature." - Miles Hewstone, Professor of Social Psychology, University of Oxford

"How can we build trust in societies that are inexorably becoming more diverse? Crunching data from five nations - Australia, Canada, Sweden, the UK, and the US - Eric Uslaner argues that governments that want to boost trust must reduce segregation. Thoroughly researched and provocatively written, this book makes a major contribution to our understanding of one of the biggest issues of our age. Its breadth of empirical analysis and depth of scholarship make it vital reading for policy makers and scholars everywhere." - Dr Andrew Leigh MP, Parliament of Australia

"Segregation and Mistrust is an unusually important book for both social science and social policy. Uslaner emphasizes the critical role of group segregation. And he emphatically answers the widely publicized claim that diversity inevitably leads to mistrust and prejudice. With data from five nations, Uslaner emphasizes the critical role of segregation." - Thomas Pettigrew, University of California, Santa Cruz

Book Description

Generalized trust - faith in people you don't know who are likely to be different from you - is a value that leads to many positive outcomes for a society. Yet many now worry that an increasingly diverse society is a threat to trust and altruism. Eric M. Uslaner argues that it is not diversity, but segregation, that makes people less trusting, and discusses the implications of multiculturalism for the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Australia.
