This chapter assesses whether diversity has a tendency to lead to more conflict or to friendly contact in Britain and the United States, evaluates the effect of diversity for whites and for minorities, and studies the connection between diversity in a locality and how community-minded and communally active its citizens are. It also discusses communal life in both countries and measures the combined effect of the potential channels, which could weaken or strengthen community life.

Keywords:   diversity, conflict, friendly contact, locality, community-minded, communal life, potential channels, community life
