James A. Banks Cherry A. McGee Banks Editors Hardcover ISBN: 0-7879-5915-4
“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 policy maker alike—indeed, anyone seeking equality of educational opportunities for all students.”
—Vanessa Siddle Walker, professor,
Division of Educational Studies, Emory 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,

This new edition of a landmark resource assembles the leading scholars in multicultural education to discuss the history, philosophy, practice, and future of the field. Some of its many contributors include Linda Darling-Hammond, Gloria Ladson Billings, Carlos Cortes, and Joyce Epstein. Collectively, the authors reflect on the major research and scholarship that has developed since the field emerged in the 1960s and 1970s. This volume also provides objective evaluation and critical analysis of key controversies and debates in the field. For the second edition, twenty new chapters have been written and classic chapters revised to reflect changes in the field. Topics covered include the research and education of specific ethnic groups, the role of gender and race in educational policy and practice, second language teaching and learning, academic achievement and access to knowledge, the dynamics of inter-group relations, and diversity in higher education.
