Review:

«It is rare to find a book written at the higher education level that so clearly integrates the theory of multicultural education with actual course development and teaching. Faculty in all disciplines will find this text immensely valuable in transforming their practice to meet the needs of a multicultural society.» (William A. Howe, Past President, National Association for Multicultural Education; Co-Author of ‘Becoming a Multicultural Educator: Developing Awareness’, ‘Gaining Skills’, and ‘Taking Action’)
«This collection of chapters [...] expands and enriches the discourse about teaching ethnically and culturally diverse issues and students. It exemplifies in practice some key theoretical ideas, such as multicultural education should be comprehensive, systemic, and transformative to be most effective. It places teaching and learning in many different disciplines in higher education at the center of multicultural education instead of the more common tendency to restrict this mandate to colleges of education and pre-K-12 curriculum [...] Compliments are due to this group of scholars, teachers, and authors for daring to do what many of their colleagues deny, avoid, or resist; for adding more weight to the credibility and viability of campus-wide, cross-discipline multicultural education in colleges and universities, and for opening pathways of transformative possibilities for others to pursue.» (Geneva Gay, University of Washington; Author of ‘Culturally Responsive Teaching’)
