Diversity and Community: An Interdisciplinary Reader is a collection of newly-commissioned essays that explore the notion of community in its many theoretical, practical, and cultural manifestations. The book examines the nature of community, the relation of individual and group identity to community norms and values, and the possibilities for cross-cultural understanding. Throughout, the volume deals with issues confronting many diverse communities including African, African-American, Asian-American, Native American, Latin-American, Anglo- and Franco-Canadian, Canadian Aboriginal, Japanese, gay and lesbian, computer-mediated, and counter-culture communities.Including contributions from thinkers such as Martha Nussbaum, Jean Bethke Elsthain, D.A. Masolo, Mary Hawkesworth, Lewis Gordon, Maria Lugones, Crispin Sartwell, Duane Champagne, and Frank Cunningham, as well as work by several new theorists, this book is a solid, comprehensive investigation into an important issue.
