Majority Minority
What happens when “minorities" become the “majority?” Author Justin Gest scans the world to find ways to avert meltdown in divided societies like the US - where this will happen soon.

Demographic change is already factoring into American campaigns and elections, steeped as they are in identity politics. Justin Gest — whose new book Majority Minority studies shifts in societies around the world will sketch ways toward coexistence rather than conflict.

With examples from New York to Singapore and Trinidad to Hawai'i, Gest charts paths forward in an uncertain future.
