Understanding Human Differences uses a stimulating inquiry approach to discuss and debate the most critical issues of diversity in America. Grounded in research from the behavioral and social sciences, this text uses a question-and-answer format to bring the topics and issues to life. The conceptual framework for the book examines issues from cultural, individual and institutional perspectives. The last section of the book focuses on changes already achieved or that need to be implemented in schools and other areas of society to create a more just society.
The 6th Edition is thoroughly updated to keep you aware of new factors impacting ongoing issues of diversity as well as emerging new issues.
