Crossing the Thinnest Line

In this book, Lauren Leader looks at America and describes the possibility for our nation when we embrace our differences.

At the heart of America’s current social conflict are fundamental questions about our values as a nation. What does it mean to be American? When will women be fully equal? What should we do about immigration? Will we ever fully embrace the LGBT community into our society? Will racism diminish in a majority/minority future America? As one of the most diverse nations on earth, how can we live together peacefully and productively?

At a time of seemly intractable conflict, Leader passionately argues that we must find a way to make our multifaceted diversity an asset, or else it will continue to be our deepest and most painful source of strife. In Crossing the Thinnest Line, she explains it is possible to bridge our divides and turn our differences into a source of ingenuity, innovation, and prosperity. It is possible to talk about difference so that everyone becomes part of the solution.
