The editor of the award winning, four volume Praeger set The Psychology of Prejudice and Discrimination brings her team back together to take a comprehensive look at the flip side of the issue diversity. America as a melting pot is a myth. Divergent groups do not fully blend with each other, and the fact that people can retain their cultural identities is our strength. Our weakness, however, is a lack of respect for diversity that may reduce opportunity in areas ranging from health and education to employment and legal protection. The importance of understanding, supporting, and acting to encourage cultural diversity across social, psychological, political, legal, career, and educational avenues is addressed in this one stop source for the latest research, developments, and updates. Social privilege for certain groups, the oppression of others, and methods to teach diversity necessary for our future are all addressed. Contributors, from psychologists to educators to social workers, also take a close look at programs spurring success in diversity in the United States and globally.
