From the Back Cover:

A best-selling text for introducing readers to issues of diversity in U.S. society and education, Understanding Human Differences hones in on the study of diversity in 21st Century America while presenting historical perspectives and background. The text’s clear conceptual framework for teaching about diversity grounded in interdisciplinary research from the social sciences including education, sociology, biology, history, etc. successfully prepares both education and non-education majors to engage in discussions about diversity in America..

 

The popular inquiry format of this text encourages readers to discuss and debate topics, so they gain a deeper understanding of the issues addressed within each chapter.  The author looks at all of the "isms" of U.S. society (sexism, classism, racism, etc.) through three overlapping lenses: the individual, institutions, and culture.  Its strong historical perspective and balance of theory and application not only prepares pre-service teachers to be more accepting and successful working with diverse students in their classrooms, but also prepares students in other fields to be more sensitive to the issues affecting the diverse individuals they will meet and work with throughout their lives.
