9780415398206: Race, Culture, and Education: The Selected Works of James A. Banks (World Library of Educationalists)

Considered the father of multicultural education in the US and known throughout the world as one of the field’s most important founder, theorist and researcher, James A. Banks has  collected here twenty-one of his most important and best works from across the span of his career. Drawing out the major themes that have shaped the field of multicultural education as well as outlining the development of Banks’ own career, these articles, chapters and papers focus on eight key issues:

  • black studies and the teaching of history
  • research and research issues
  • teaching ethnic studies
  • teaching social studies for decision-making and citizen action
  • multiethnic education and school reform
  • multicultural education and knowledge construction
  • the global dimensions of multicultural education
  • democracy, diversity and citizenship education.

The last part of the book consists of a selected bibliography of all Banks’ publications over his forty-year career, as a source of further reading on each of these pivotal ideas.

Review:

'Race, Culture, and Education will undoubtedly serve as one of the seminal readings for practitioners, scholars, and researchers whose works are concerned with diversity in education, decision making in the social studies, multicultural education, or global citizenship. This book does an exemplary job of capturing the breadth, depth, complexity, and analytic sophistication of Professor Banks’ work.'- Teachers College Record

'Banks is more than a founding father; he's a rigorous, pioneering thinker and the pre-eminent black academic of my lifetime ... His definition of social science is the best and most compelling I have ever read.' - Tim Brighouse

 

"This collection that Banks has selected to represent his epistemological journey provokes many questions, observations, objections, "ahas," and "oh nos." I urge others to read, reflect, and respond to this rich sampling of Banks's thoughts." --Comparative Education Review, November 2007

"This collection is essential reading to comprehensively understand the critically important work of James Banks, the internationally recognised premier scholar of multicultural education... This book should definitely be in college libraries as well as professional libraries of multicultural practitioners and scholars" - The Journal of Negro Education
