About the Book
This volume is the first authoritative reference work to provide a
truly comprehensive international description and analysis of
multicultural education around the world. It is organized around key
concepts and uses case studies from various nations in different parts
of the world to exemplify and illustrate the concepts. Case studies
are from many nations, including the United States, the United
Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Norway, Bulgaria,
Russia, South Africa, Japan, China, India, New Zealand, Malaysia,
Singapore, Indonesia, Brazil, and Mexico. Two chapters focus on
regions— Latin America and the French-speaking nations in Africa. The
book is divided into ten sections, covering theory and research
pertaining to curriculum reform, immigration and citizenship,
language, religion, and the education of ethnic and cultural minority
groups among other topics.

With 40 newly commissioned pieces written by a prestigious group of
internationally renowned scholars, The Routledge International
Companion to Multicultural Education provides the definitive statement
on the state of multicultural education and on its possibilities for
the future.
