About the Author

William H. Frey is a senior fellow with the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution and research professor in population studies at the University of Michigan. Frey is an internationally recognized demographer with expertise in U.S. demographics, American political demographics, and the U.S. Census. His commentary and observations appear frequently in major print, online, and broadcast media..


No one understands the tectonic shifts in American society at the root of today's political turmoil better than Bill Frey. His work remains indispensable to understanding the powerful forces of demographic change creating a new America--and the resistance those changes have ignited in parts of the electorate. At a moment of intense national division, this new edition of Diversity Explosion offers a path toward recognizing our undiminished common interests.--Ronald Brownstein, senior editor at The Atlantic and senior political analysts at CNN

Bill Frey's updated book is a must-read guide to understanding the tectonic political and cultural shifts in America, particularly in this post-Trump election era. It's an important and useful work for anyone who wants to understand the demographic forces that will frame elections in years to come.--Asma Khalid, political correspondent, NPR

Bill Frey has a message: A powerful, multiracial, and younger America is emerging. In both cities and suburbs, the young and the nonwhite are forming new communities and bringing progressive attitudes, modern institutions, and dynamic ideas about American politics and government. Diversity Explosion is an engrossing tour of this new, richer America and what it will mean for the future of our nation.--Carolyn Dewitt, president and executive director, Rock the Vote

"Though not all readers may share Frey's optimistic outlook, this study offers valuable insights, with a clear, straightforward presentation enhanced by informative graphs, maps, and tables."--Robin Tatu, ASEE Prism
