  Abstract:  Excesses of Multiculturalism in the USA. Multiculturalism has been a major topic at the end of this century. Like many other topics this one was first elaborated in America. From the very beginning it gave rise to much controversy. This paper tackles the benefits of multiculturalism as a way of preserving languages, values, traditions specific to various groups in a pluralist society. At the same time it highlights the excesses of multiculturalism as these were revealed in the work of outstanding American authors. The main conclusion is that excessive ethnic-cultural pluralism encourages separatism and thus affects the cohesion of the community.
