Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Multiculturalism: A Critical Reader delineates the prevailing concerns and considerations, principles and practices, concepts and categories that fall under the rubric of "multiculturalism". Contributors spell out what they take multiculturalism to be committed to as much as what it is against.

Themes analyzed include the relations between self and other, selves and others; between knowledge, power, pedagogy, and empowerment: between disciplinary definition and canonical confinement; between meaning, ambiguity, and representation; between history and multiple intersecting histories, reason and rationalities; and between culture domination, resistance, and self-assertion.

Synopsis:

Multiculturalism: A Critical Reader delineates the prevailing concerns and considerations, principles and practices, concepts and categories that fall under the rubric of "multiculturalism".

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [429]-441) and index.
