Multiculturalism in Global Society explores the concepts and debates surrounding the complex modern phemen of multiculturalism, and its varied effects on the advanced industrial nations of the world. With remarkable clarity and concision, it focuses on the interrelated ties of ethnicity, race, and nationalism in a world where globalizing processes have made such ties increasingly important in ecomic, political, and cultural terms. Students and scholars looking for the most up--to--date approach to understanding multiculturalism in a global perspective will find this to be an engaging, penetrating, and illuminating text.
