Review:

"The Routledge International Companion to Multicultural Education is a fantastic reference or companion for educators and researchers to explore multicultural education in diverse international, transnational, cross-national, and counternational contexts."--Multicultural Perspectives (The Official Journal of the National Association for Multicultural Education)

"Even for a writer and academic of such caliber as James Banks, this book is a tour de force.... The splendid editing has produced assured writing as well as authoritative views and analysis throughout, and this means that however complex the ideas, it is remarkably easy to read.... The writers’ ideology and their depth of analysis means that the book looks forward as well as capturing so much of what has brought us to where we are now."--Race Equality Teaching

"Collectively the chapters present an invaluable foundation to monitor multicultural policy situations and practices globally.... K-12 practitioners as well as scholars of multicultural education can benefit by dipping into various chapters of interest located in the International Companion."--Teachers College Record

"This, the third volume in an impressive series by Routledge, will long be a definitive resource on international multicultural education.... It is a must buy for all colleges around the world and an agreeable desk volume and thoughtful stimulus for educators and scholars."--Multicultural Review

"This book is essential reading for educators, policy makers, researchers, and scholars interested in the promotion of a multicultural education that is truly participatory...Its scope is especially critical for a time when the migration of so many people globally makes it ever more necessary not only to understand one’s local context, but also the context from which newcomers to the community come."--Education Review

"The Routledge International Companion to Multicultural Education is a monumental undertaking....Over the years, the various edited volumes by Banks have consistently shown him to be a systematic, thorough, and thoughtful manager of research undertakings....The Routledge Companion, along with other edited collections by James A. Banks, is destined to be an indispensable reference for anyone interested in the field of multicultural education."--Comparative Education Review

"I strongly recommend this volume as both fascinating reading and as a valuable resource for teachers and researchers at all levels in multicultural education and related fields. All of us owe significant debt to Jim Banks for his leadership in the field, as well as to the 150 other scholars who served as authors, reviewers, and advisors for this landmark volume."--Multicultural Education

"The contributions in this volume reflect a level of engagement and dedication, which sustain our hope for a more inclusive and equitable society."--Race Ethnicity and Education
