Education and the Politics of Difference, Second Edition
Select Canadian Perspectives
The book closes with a discussion of the future of multicultural and inclusive education, envisioning a school system where difference is normalized and seen as a fundamental human trait essential for social and human well-being.
“This vital book fills a very real gap in the literature on multiculturalism. It makes a valuable contribution to the present discourse on difference in which diversity tends to be conflated and collapsed; in doing so, all differences great and small are flattened. Ghosh and Abdi do not go that route; their work is soundly grounded in theory for the social sciences, and extends the discussion, for example, by critiquing the evolution of Canadian multiculturalism policy, and critically analysing Aboriginal issues.”— Cecille DePass, University of Calgary
