Description - Multiculturalism in Global Society by Peter Kivisto

Multiculturalism in a Global Society explores the concepts and debates surrounding the complex modern phenomenon of multiculturalism, and its varied effects on the advanced industrial nations of the world. With remarkable clarity and concision, it focuses on the interrelated ties of ethnicity, race, and nationalism in a world where globalizing processes have made such ties increasingly important in economic, political, and cultural terms. Beginning with a discussion and reformulation of contemporary theories of ethnicity, the book turns to case studies of the three major "settler" states in the world: the United States, Canada, and Australia. Coverage of western Europe follows, with analyses of postcolonial Britain, Germany, and France. The book concludes with a succinct summary and thoughtful prognosis about the future directions of our increasingly global society. Students and scholars looking for the most up-to-date approach to understanding multiculturalism in a global perspective will find this to be an engaging, penetrating, and illuminating text.
