Hyphened-Nation is a book that explores the impact of hyphenated identities on individuals and society. The author was inspired to write this book after living in the United Kingdom and experiencing the difference in how he was treated as an American rather than as a hyphenated one. This eye-opening experience led him on a journey to understand why the United States is one of the only countries that hyphenates its citizens by ethnicity before nationality. The book focuses on ways the U.S. and Europe differ culturally via media and how a bridge might be created to overcome these differences.
The Impact of Hyphenated Identities
Hyphenated identities limit economic, educational, societal, and cultural growth. The author argues that those same boxes we allow ourselves to be placed into as hyphenated Americans are counterproductive and divisive. In Hyphened-Nation, he makes a compelling case for a hyphen-free nation that encourages unity over divisions. The book also raises the issue of how hyphenated identities can lead to discrimination and prejudice. Instead of focusing on differences, we should embrace our shared identity as Americans.
