In the third edition of Increasing Multicultural Understanding, Don C. Locke and Daryl F. Bailey provide current tools necessary to foster positive and productive relationships among culturally diverse populations. The book will encourage readers to explore their own cultural background and identity, and in the process, begin to better understand others.
A best-seller in the first and second editions, Increasing Multicultural Understanding, Third Edition will continue to present its classic framework for critical observation with at least 10 elements, including the history of oppression, religious practices, family structure, degree of acculturation, poverty, language and the arts, racism and prejudice, sociopolitical factors, child-rearing practices, and values and attitudes.
Increasing Multicultural Understanding provides both undergraduates and graduate students in multicultural education or counselling with invaluable skills. It also successfully crosses disciplines to a variety of other fields in which the demand to understand cultural membership is growing, and works well for courses that cover specific information on a number of cultural groups.
