Cai, Mingshui
New Advocate, v11 n4 p311-24 Fall 1998

Identifies and discusses three key definitions that raise fundamental sociopolitical issues and have differing implications for how multicultural literature is incorporated into the curriculum. Discusses relationships between diversity and equity, between informing and empowering, and between reading multiculturally and reading multicultural literature. (SR)
