Eighteen academics and independent scholars from Canada, the U.S., and Israel contribute 15 chapters exploring the potential that narrative and experiential approaches offer for understanding multicultural issues in education. Based on studies from a range of geographic locations and with varied ethnic groups, the authors focus on the lives of students, teachers, parents, and communities, and bring personal experience to bear on their inquiries. Coverage includes multicultural concerns in three major North American ethnic groups--African Americans, Latinos/Latinas, and Native Americans; international multicultural teacher education issues; narrative methodology in multicultural education research; and multiculturalism in democratic and community life.
