It also helps students to acquire cosmopolitan perspectives and values needed to attain equality and social justice for people around the world. In the new chapters, Banks draws heavily upon his recent work which focuses on how students in multicultural nations around the world can be educated in ways that will help them to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and values needed to make decisions and to take action to create a more just and humane world.

''Educating Citizens in a Multicultural Society will provide both the novice and the expert with an instructive perspective for considering multicultural education. By shifting the lens to citizenship, a lively topic in academic circles right now, Banks once again demonstrates his intellectual leadership in this field. --Margaret Smith Crocco, Teachers College, Columbia University, Review in Multicultural Education

''James Banks captures for us an essential element of American citizenship diversity. This volume is a tribute to the triumphs, challenges, and sometimes tragedies of citizenship in a democratic and multicultural society. This is must reading for the student of U.S. history, civics, and the political process. --Gloria Ladson-Billings, University of Wisconsin Madison

The 11 essays that comprise the book provide a comprehensive blending of Banks s work in multicultural education and citizenship education. This is an outstanding book, one that is worthwhile reading for all students, educators, and those interested in the political process.''
