Transforming America: Cultural Cohesion, Educational Achievement, and Global Competitiveness. Educational Psychology. Volume 7
DeVillar, Robert A.; Jiang, Binbin
Peter Lang New York
Creatively and rigorously blending historical research and contemporary data from various disciplines, this book cogently and comprehensively illustrates the problems and opportunities the American nation faces in education, economics, and the global arena. The authors propose a framework of transformation that would render American culture no longer a culture of conflict, but one whose purpose is to achieve metacultural cohesion. The book illustrates how this change is imperative if we are to ensure that our nation and its individual members thrive domestically--and if we are to enhance our global competitiveness and contributions, geopolitically and otherwise, throughout this century and beyond. "Transforming America" is a welcome foundational text for teachers and students in education and the social sciences at both undergraduate and graduate levels. [Foreword by Jim Cummins.]
