America is changing. We’re older. We’re less white, and the generation gap between baby boomers and millennials is growing wider by the day. A senior fellow at Pew Research Center, author Paul Taylor explores how these changes are profoundly reshaping our country in his book The Next America. Among his conclusions: the boomers and millennials are “divided by race, politics, values, religion and technology to a degree that’s rare in our history.” Taylor is a former Washington Post reporter who covered national politics and served as a foreign correspondent. He also previously oversaw Pew’s demographic, social, and generational research. Using that treasure trove of data, Taylor has written a fascinating book about America that tells us who we are and where we’re headed.
