Thoroughly explained - Excellent book

I read this book cover to cover. There is so much history in the book, well explained, it made me see how far back we have have been dealing with injustice across the world. Prejudice, discrimination, oppression in all it's forms throughout the ages, including issues related to race, religion, gender and more. Every chapter is bringing historical facts making us realize how we are the way we are, and how we can learn to change this behavior. Learning the roots of the problems is key, and this book does an excellent job at describing every aspect of our social backgrounds. Definitely an important book to take into the classroom and a definite read for those of you who want to be part of the change.

Readings for Diversity

Excellent Reading. I am teaching a graduate level Human Diversity course and my students love the book. This book is also an excellent discussion starter.

Culturally Congruent

This book is offers such a diverse amount of information about various group populations. The only group it doesn't touch on is Ageism, but it is great for gaining inorfation from individuals who have been oppressed or discriminated in some way. Great for anyone interested in learning about diverse populations.

Great Anthology on Oppression and Liberation

I found this book to be a fabulous accompaniment to the Teaching for Social Justice and Diversity book. It succeeds in trying to cover an extremely broad subject area.

Great Resource

This book is a great resource for readings on diversity. I'm always looking for articles to start discussion with others and prompt thoughts of my own. This book has articles on many topics from a variety of perspectives. It is also organized based on identity and also on aspect of social justice education (i.e. indexed as heterosexism and also privilege). I highly recommend it and its companion "teaching for diversity and social justice."
