Dictionary of Multicultural Psychology
Issues, Terms, and Concepts
- Lena E. Hall - Nova Southeastern University, USA
"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
