2005 0-7734-6001-2 This book is a compilation of topics dealing with a myriad of multicultural issues facing educators and other members of society. The book addresses the importance of relative knowledge in dealing with cultural diversity in an ever-changing global society. In this unique edition, the editors purport to enlighten educators and others regarding the complexity of multiculturalism, dealing with education issues with various groups, and examining pathways toward empowerment and acculturation. There is a plethora of information on the subject of multiculturalism. However, there is a void, or dearth, of empirical research in many aspects of this currently discussed topic. This work is composed of a number of scholarly research studies conducted by the authors/editors. The broad range of well-developed and thoroughly investigated treatises should provide a strong foundation for future researchers of this growing societal phenomenon.
