What the World Demands of Everyone April 7 2012
By George Feifer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book's dedication alone is almost worth its cost. The authors' two granddaughters descend from a large mixture of races, religions and beliefs, which makes its point well because that's what's happening, almost inevitably, as the world shrinks ever faster; happening especially in America but also almost everywhere else. And the point--that it's "high time" for peace among ethnicities--is as important as it is rarely made, maybe less than ever as modern media's heavy coverage of ethnic strife and killing nourishes the notion, maybe also inevitably, that things are getting worse that way.
Although many readers can check the accuracy of the clearly, often eloquently written survey's observations about Queens, New York, whose residents speak 128 languages and do live in inspiring peace, I venture that relatively few can do the same for the Tatarstan, whose capital is Kazan, on the Volga River some 450 miles east of Moscow. (Ivan the Terrible annexed the city in 1552, Brysac and Meyer remind.) But I've visited that Russian republic, which history has made an unlikely setting for a multi-cultural society because the population is divided almost equally between Sunni Muslims of Tatar origin and Orthodox Christians of Russian origin: not always a happy mix, to put it mildly.
But now, the authors inform--also explaining why--the little republic is far more peaceful, more forward-looking and happier than anyone who hasn't been there can imagine; and I can testify that they're right about that and about the reasons. Their analysis is as good as their reporting, meaning very good. And both are urgent because we're all in it together, the kaleidoscope of the world's races, religions, creeds, languages, faiths and convictions. This book's message is utterly essential and it's also a compelling read.

It covered the subject thoroughly. First part a little slow-going because it was intellectually very dense and academic, but the authors loosened up as it went along. I found it very helpful for pointers in writing my own book now along a similar vein (travel to unveil cultural truths and obscure information—here about ethnic differences surmounted in particular geographic areas. I may be looking to Amazon to publish or make available my own book shortly.
