It is both fitting and gratifying that Diversity in America has elicited such richly diverse comments from the Symposium participants. Their contributions teach me about some of the implications of my own book. More important, they refine and advance the debates that I had hoped to provoke in writing it. For all this, I am indebted to the participants, and I offer my responses in the same constructive, analytical spirit that their comments so admirably exhibit. I shall try to do so without repeating much of what I wrote in the book. One purpose of this Symposium, after all, is to get non-participants to pick it up and read it.
