9781411658424: Understanding Cultural Diversity in Today's Complex World

No one in this country is untouched by the impact of diversity. Yet, as diverse as diversity is, are too the many different emotions and attitudes evoked by diversity. As a nation, we are not well equipped to deal with the swirling transitions that are converging on us on a daily basis because of the nature of being the most diverse country in the world.

This text (in its 4th edition) will well serve the purpose for many who decide to learn and teach the fundamentals of cultural diversity. It will be beneficial for college students, high school juniors and seniors, and organizations whose ever-changing workforce leads to the necessity of educating employees on how to deal with the diversity of employees and customers in a positive manner. Although the original intent for the book was to serve as a text for students and employees, this book has also been purchased by individuals who just want to learn more about diversity for themselves.

From the Publisher:

When Dr. Leo Parvis first started teaching cultural diversity at Dunwoody College over 3 years ago, he had to quickly pick a textbook to teach to his classes. After a few weeks, he was dissatisfied with the text, so he created a supplemental packet of information in order to provide students with a more complete educational experience. Then he started searching for a new textbook. After reviewing many diversity textbooks, he still wasn’t finding what he was looking for—a textbook that was a good balance of theory and relevant examples students could understand and relate to. So then he took on the long, arduous task of writing a text of his own. Two years later, his text was ready to publish. His book is full of examples from today’s pop culture, including poems, quotes, song lyrics and examples from TV shows and movies, providing examples students can easily relate to and remember.

From the Author:

This book (in its 4th edition) is based on my personal experience after three years of teaching cultural diversity at the college level. I was not happy with the texts that were available so decided to write my own text based on my experience. I am now using this textbook in my own in-person classes and online classes with positive feedback and reactions from my students. As it has been used in my classes, I have used the feedback from students to improve and update its contents, bringing it now to its' 4th edition. This book has been used by a number of other universities as well.

Help us spread the word: "Embrace Diversity, Embrace Our World." We have been successful in establishing "National Diversity Day" which is the first Friday in October (Diversity Awareness Month). We encourage you to have your own National Diversity Day celebration at your school, place of worship, work or home...we are all diverse in our many wonderful ways...lets celebrate those things that make us the same and different! We are all one in one nation, the most beautifully diverse nation in the world!
