It addresses new issues such as findings on the increase in the number of interracial children and the characteristics of children of immigrant families.

The Handbook's forty--nine chapters are divided into twelve parts that clarify the meaning and boundaries of multicultural education.

The volume also offers comprehensive and balanced analyses of key controversies and debates in the field.
