Overview

Multi-culturalism
Roots and Realities

Edited by C. James Trotman

Examines the place of multiculturalism in our society.

The most meaningful support for multiculturalism has come from intellectuals, such as those represented in this book, who have discovered greater meaning about our American past by incorporating the concepts driving multi-culturalism. These essays engage the word and its meanings, as varied as they are, in an effort to add and expand on the dialogue for this ever-increasingly vital concept. However, Multiculturalism: Roots and Realities is not a book aimed at debates; instead, each essay generally makes use of multiculturalism as a way of examining history and social themes, while providing a broader and perhaps a deeper view of 19th-century American life and thought. The book’s general goal, which in fact belongs to all of us, is to recognize excellence in the cultures of the historically neglected, claim excellence where it is found, and position it so that it can contribute to a fuller understanding of the human condition.

Contributors include Susan Alves, Barbara J. Ballard, Jeannine DeLombard, Juniper Ellis, Joe B. Fulton, Henry Louis Gates, Richard E. Greene, Richard Hardack, Julie Husband, Gillian Johns, Verner D. Mitchell, Christine Palumbo-DeSimone, Janet Shannon, C. James Trotman, Matthew Wilson, and Julie Winch
