Multicultural Central Asia.
Boyle, Eric D.
This article addresses the multicultural aspect of Central Asia in response to the discussion on diversity in U.S. classrooms. Many areas of the world are more diverse than the U.S., and these areas experience successes and failures with many of the same issues the U.S. is currently struggling with. Comparing the U.S. diversity debate with similar discussions in other areas of the world may provide an additional perspective on the issues of cultural identity, the search for common causes, and inter-ethnic cooperation. The article gives an overview of Central Asia's multiculturalism and discusses the following issues: "The Soviet Influence on Culture"; "Historical Claims and Present Predicaments"; "Language Rights"; "Affirmative Action"; and "Women and 'Family Values.'" (Contains numerous references.) (BB)
