It differs from the traditional way of addressing multicultural education and the strategies for teaching about other cultures. The authors deal directly with the problem of racism -- a topic that is both controversial and explosive. The intention of this book is not to assign blame to anyone, but to stimulate a dialogue among educational professionals about how the healing of racism can begin through teacher education programs and, as a result, through new classroom teachers. This book examines the social, political, and psychological perspectives of racism and enables the reader to better understand how racism has torn at the very fabric of society.
