MEDIA REVIEWS

'Race, Culture, and Education will undoubtedly serve as one of the seminal readings for practitioners, scholars, and researchers whose works are concerned with diversity in education, decision making in the social studies, multicultural education, or global citizenship. This book does an exemplary job of capturing the breadth, depth, complexity, and analytic sophistication of Professor Banks' work.'- Teachers College Record

'Banks is more than a founding father; he's a rigorous, pioneering thinker and the pre-eminent black academic of my lifetime ... His definition of social science is the best and most compelling I have ever read.' - Tim Brighouse

"This collection that Banks has selected to represent his epistemological journey provokes many questions, observations, objections, "ahas," and "oh nos." I urge others to read, reflect, and respond to this rich sampling of Banks's thoughts." --Comparative Education Review, November 2007

"This collection is essential reading to comprehensively understand the critically important work of James Banks, the internationally recognised premier scholar of multicultural education... This book should definitely be in college libraries as well as professional libraries of multicultural practitioners and scholars" - The Journal of Negro Education
