In a climate of culture wars and tremendous economic uncertainty, the media have often reduced America to a simplistic schism between red states and blue states.

The result is Our Patchwork Nation, a refreshing, sometimes startling, look at how America's diversities often defy conventional wisdom.The result is Our Patchwork Nation, a refreshing, sometimes startling, look at how Americaa#39;s diversities often defy conventional wisdom.
