    Ted Glasser is the author of The Claims of Multiculturalism and Journalisms Promise of Diversity, a new study which concludes that too many diversity initiatives focus on the modest and mostly inconsequential goal of newsroom integration. The study argues that the American press ought to be more concerned about diversity across newsrooms than diversity within newsrooms. A copy of the study, which appears in the current issue of the Journal of Communication, is available from Ted Glasser at Stanford University. Click here for contact information.
