This introductory chapter examines the diversity revolution, which occurred when individuals were influenced by the pull of the rich world, thus causing an increase in immigration over the years, and studies the themes of race and immigration in the United States and Britain, presenting an outline of the following chapters. It also looks at Barack Obama's election as President of the United States, which possibly reflects a larger change in the treatment of America's minorities and immigrants.
