Dictionary of Multicultural Psychology
Issues, Terms, and Concepts


October 2004 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

"There appears to be a burgeoning lexicon of terms and concepts pertinent to multiculturalism. Unfortunately, this increase in the number of terms and concepts seems to be colliding with a decrease in a shared understanding of what they mean. A dictionary style volume for such terms seems an admirable and overdue quest."

-William H. George, University of Washington
