Jews, confucians, and protestants : cultural capital and the end of multiculturalism
Harrison, Lawrence E
Lanham, Maryland : Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, [2013]
Cultural Capital Defined -- Why Jews, Confucians, and Protestants? -- Jews -- Confucians -- Protestants -- Other High Achievers I: Basques and Sikhs -- Other High Achievers II: Mormons and Ismailis -- Catholic Latin America -- Latino Immigration into the United States -- African Americans -- What to Do.

"Multiculturalism--the belief that no culture is better or worse than any other; it is merely different--has come to dominate Western intellectual thought and to serve as a guide to domestic and foreign policy and development aid. But what if multiculturalism itself is flawed? What if some cultures are more prone to progress than others and more successful at creating the cultural capital that encourages democratic governance, social justice for all, and the elimination of poverty? In Jews, Confucians, and Protestants: Cultural Capital and the End of Multiculturalism, Lawrence E. Harrison takes the politically incorrect stand that all cultures are not created equal. Analyzing the performance of 117 countries, grouped by predominant religion, Harrison argues for the superiority of those cultures that emphasize Jewish, Confucian, and Protestant values. A concluding chapter outlines ways in which cultural change may substantially transform societies within a generation."--Publisher's website.
