    Upon its first publication, A Different Mirror was hailed by critics and academics everywhere as a dramatic new retelling of A different mirror book nation's past.

    Diverse ethnic groups have contributed to American economy, language, culture development. However, I did like the main idea of the chapter. Like the natives, African people had an unfamiliar color to their skin and were thought to be unintelligent and savage by the Europeans. For the most part Takaki draws heavily from secondary sources and adds little in the way of new scholarship.
