'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

This Dictionary is an up-to-date volume that contains numerous references to relevant concepts and terms in the field of multicultural psychology.

Professor Lena Hall has collected, studied, and analyzed a multitude of terms in her eleven years of teaching multicultural psychology, and she has gathered them together in this handy, accessible reference book.

Key Features:

Definitions are written in concise language for easy comprehension.

Standard dictionary format is familiar and convenient to use, making this book a handy reference for students and professionals alike who wish to clarify a term or broaden their knowledge on a topic.

Relevant reference sources are included along with each entry, enabling students to do further reading on concepts they have learned.

Dictionary entries are excellent starting points for stimulating class discussions and creative research and written assignments.
