Encyclopedia of Multicultural Education.
Mitchell, Bruce M.; Salsbury, Robert E.
This encyclopedia contains over 400 terms, phrases, concepts, U.S. Supreme Court decisions, significant contributors to the American macroculture from the country's various racial and/or ethnic backgrounds, key events, and court cases related to multicultural education. Arranged alphabetically, each entry is defined and discussed in keeping with its relationship to multicultural education. Entries were chosen by an advisory group consisting of people who have played prominent roles in various areas of multicultural education. Encyclopedia entries were selected based on their relationship to the content and method of multicultural education, rather than on the basis of historical prominence, celebrity of the individual, or the event cited. Sources consulted in the preparation of this work were chosen according to three criteria: relevance to the context of multicultural education, value as authoritative sources, and currency of scholarship. Each item provides a brief description of the entry, along with cited references related to the topic. A selected bibliography is provided at the end of the encyclopedia. (Contains 110 references.)
