"Fascinating and delightfully provocative. The authors have gleaned insights from history, social science, and personal experience to help the reader understand multiculturalism not as a political buzzword but as a basis for a rich personal identity." -- Marilynn B. Brewer, PhD Professor of Psychology Ohio State University Eminent Scholar in Social Psychology "Between Cultures is both timely and desperately needed. I recommend this marvelous book to all who want to free their own potential to live in harmony with themselves and with their brothers and sisters from other backgrounds." -- LaDonna Harris President Americans for Indian Opportunity ". . . introduces a new and radical way of reframing identity for those of us who navigate cultural boundaries.

This book has tremendous implications for multicultural people and for those who work in human potential fields." -- Rui-ling King Director Small World Associates "Wow!
