Overview

In this second edition, twenty-nine classic chapters have been revised and updated and twenty new chapters have been added to reflect how the field has evolved since the first edition of the Handbook was published in 1995. This landmark volume describes and analyzes changes such as increased immigration to the United States and new developments in theory and research related to race, culture, ethnicity, and language. It addresses new issues such as findings on the increase in the number of interracial children and the characteristics of children of immigrant families. The educational implications of new research and trends are also discussed. The Handbook's forty-nine chapters are divided into twelve parts that clarify the meaning and boundaries of multicultural education. Topics covered include trends and developments, ethnic groups in historical and social science research, language issues, academic achievement, higher education, and international perspectives on multicultural education. The volume also offers comprehensive and balanced analyses of key controversies and debates in the field.

Reviews

This comprehensive and enlightening volume embraces the major research and scholarship in multicultural education? tracing historical themes that shape our contemporary views, crossing disciplinary boundaries, joining theory and practice, and provoking a new public discourse about navigating the twin goals of excellence and equity in education. The Handbook of Research on Multicultural Education will surely be a valuable resource for scholars, practitioners, and policymakers. ? Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, Emily Hargroves Fisher Professor of Education, Harvard University 'I am large, I contain multitudes,' boasted Walt Whitman in his celebration of the American voice and spirit, 'Song of Myself.' His claim applies equally well to the second edition of the Handbook of Research on Multicultural Education, ably edited by James A. Banks and Cherry A. McGee Banks. Newly revised and expanded, this volume indeed contains a multitude of voices and perspectives, providing an invaluable resource for all those interested in issues of equity and the role of education in a pluralistic democracy. ? Pam Grossman, professor, Stanford University, School of Education Laden with new scholarship and updated revisions of some of the earlier chapters, this carefully conceptualized second edition of the Handbook promises to be an even more indispensable resource than its highly acclaimed predecessor. It presents both depth and breath in the field and is essential reading for new scholars, established scholars, practitioners, and policymakers alike? indeed, anyone seeking equality of educational opportunities for all students. ? Vanessa Siddle Walker, professor, Division of Educational Studies, Emory University This book is a treasure trove for anyone who is serious about multicultural education. Parents, teachers, undergraduates, postgraduates, and accomplished scholars alike will encounter ideas and arguments that are challenging, positive, and based on solid research. The editors have brought together an enormous range of debate, theory, and fact in a single volume that will act as both an indispensable reference tool and a catalyst to new ideas and approaches. ? David Gilborn, professor of education, University of London, Institute of Education and editor of the international journal, Race, Ethnicity and Education The Handbook is the most comprehensive and up-to-date collection of major research and scholarship related to multicultural education. Every scholar and practicing educator3/4both in multicultural education and general education? should read it. ? Ana Maria Villegas, professor of education, Montclair State University It is hard to imagine a multicultural scholar, researcher, K-12 educator or administrator who could afford not to be thoroughly conversant with the rich content of this defining Handbook. Broadened, updated, and revised, this unrivalled second edition captures the diversity and impact of essential contemporary issues such as educational standards and provides a solid foundation for anticipating future developments. ? Evelyn Kalibala, director of social studies and multicultural education, New York City Public Schools
