What reviewers are saying:
"The examples and cases are students' favorites. The quality of the information presented [in this text] is excellent."
- Henry M. Codjoe, Dalton State College
“I like the emphasis placed on ethnic and national groups covered in Part II. Other texts don't cover this topic to the extent that this text does. I particularly like her treatment of immigration and how it has impacted our nation and our schools."
-Richard Orem, Northern Illinois University
“More areas of diversity were covered than are found in most texts of this nature. Overall, the writing style is great. It is easy to read, has a narrative feel."
