"Provides the blueprint for a new direction in the social sciences--from ethnocentrism to understanding people and groups in historical, political, and sociocultural contexts." (Manuel Ramirez, professor of psychology, University of Texas)
"This edited volume on human diversity is a valuable resource. . . . The book offers concise and relevant conceptual information on race, ethnicity, culture, acculturation, intergroup relations, ageism, ableism, and identity formation in oppressive contexts. . . . Helpful concepts, examples and explanations are presented that should go a long way in advancing an appreciation and affirmation of diversity."
"This book attempts to bring issues of diversity to the forefront of psychological theory and research. The time is ripe for mental health practitioners and researchers to treat diversity with the rigor it deserves. This book provides some tools to do so." (Dharma E. Cortes, Ph.D., Research Associate, Hispanic Research Center, Fordham University, The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease)
