Peshkin examines the role played by ethnicity in the daily life of a town he calls ''Riverview'' and its only high school. Immersing himself in the daily life of halls and classrooms of Riverview's high school and the streets of its neighborhoods, Peshkin coaxes from both young and old their own reflections on the town's early days, on the period of ethnic strife sparked by the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., and on the way they see Riverview today. ''Peshkin strikes a hopeful cord, revealing what social encounters among ethnic groups--at their best--can be like in America.''--Education Digest
