This collection of essays, first published in 1984, on multicultural education seeks to introduce teachers, teacher educators, educational administrators, policymakers and others to several of the most significant dimensions of the field. But it also brings out the complexity of the issues and the dangers of over-simplification, the inadequacies of much of the available data, and the need for better long-term strategies.
