This book aims to bring together two movements - multiculturalism and anti-racism - which, though having aims in common, have been at arms length over the years. Differences of emphasis have meant that classroom practice has been the natural realm of multiculturalism, while anti-racism has been dissatisfied with an approach that accentuates life-style at the expense of challenging or changing the racism that minority students experience. In these debates, there has also been a concentration on culturally specific topics, and this book goes beyond the national boundaries to find how international concerns and contexts might provide answers to problem faced in single countries. Leading figures in the USA, Canada, South Africa, the UK and Australia write on the issues.
