Two forces have shaken the United States in recent years: the rise of terrorism and an unprecedented loss of jobs to outsourcing. The resulting war on terrorism and concerns about job security have focused new and intense attention on the nation's immigration policy, civil liberties and fast-growing Latino minority. At the same time, traditional American life is giving way to new lifestyles-same-sex marriage, increasing access to gambling and a continued flight from the agricultural Plains states to the coastal urban centers. The reports from The CQ Researcher en espanol that make up this book will enable students and citizens to study the background and debates surrounding the social issues that transform American life and to become knowledgeable participants in those debates.
