"Multicultural Psychology is the most wide-ranging, thoughtful, and critical textbook on multiculturalism to date. This tremendously important book provides the perfect balance of careful presentation of psychological concepts, research, and theories, and a sensitive, expertly rendered discussion of their applications to people of color. Hall invites learners into a multicultural world and educates them about how psychology helps to understand and make sense of it. Everything about this book makes it ideal for a course in multicultural psychology." – James M. Jones, University of Delaware, USA
