Synopsis: The increasing ethnic, racial, cultural, religious, and language diversity in nations throughout the world is forcing educators and policymakers to rethink existing notions of citizenship and nationality. To experience cultural democracy and freedom, a nation must be unified around a set of democratic values such as justice and equality that balance unity and diversity and protect the rights of diverse groups. Diversity and Citizenship Education: Global Perspectives brings together in one comprehensive volume a group of international experts on the topic of diversity and citizenship education. These experts discuss and identify the shared issues and possibilities that exist when educating for national unity and cultural diversity. Diversity and Citizenship Education: Global Perspectives presents compelling case studies and examples of successful programs and practices from twelve nations, discusses problems that arise when societies are highly stratified along race, cultural, and class lines, and describes guidelines and benchmarks that practicing educators can use to structure citizenship education programs that balance unity and diversity. The book covers a broad range of issues and includes vital information on such topics as
From the Back Cover:
"This edited volume of works compiled by James Banks, one of the leading scholars in multicultural studies and education, offers a much needed analysis of the sweeping landscape of citizenship that makes up the demographic reality of many countries around the world . . . The book is timely, well researched, and well organized. It should be required reading in many political science courses and in multicultural education courses as well."
"This widely informative and well-written book . . . should be read by all educators around the world who are concerned to create just and inclusive multicultural societies."
—Race Equality Teaching
"It is a commendable work in that its contributors profoundly enhance our understanding of the broad spectrum of practices in citizenship education in a variety of social, political, and cultural contexts. It illustrates brilliantly how powerful global and domestic non-state actors and institutions impinge upon the education policies of sovereign nation-states."
—Teachers College Record
"[The contributors'] insights and perspectives provide a rich resource for students and professors of comparative education . . . drawing attention to pressing issues facing educators, researchers, and planners."
—Comparative Education Review
"A timely contribution . . . thought provoking articles . . . Since global context of diversity issues are marginalized in educational research, this important book provides a much needed dialogue on the topic."
—Anthropology and Education
