Description

This book provides a comprehensive overview of human diversity by examining how issues of race, ethnicity, disability, religion, and sexual orientation affect daily interactions. With the increased awareness of cultural diversity, essays focus the reader on the many factors to consider in our ever-expanding society. Rather than adopting an elaborately theoretical style to explore these issues, the authors address the question of interaction in a clear and accessible style. Each essay, written by a leading scholar in the field, presents a different perspective on how appreciating and understanding human variety can enhance the quality of interactions between social groups.show more

Review quote

"Given the richness of the topic, it becomes impossible to include every issue or group in one succinct book. Rather, each chapeter should be thought of as a 'snapshot' of a particular group. Still this insightful group book manages to include much highly useful information, and serves as a valuable aid in better understanding issues of difference. While this book accomplishes its scholarly purpose in describing the many colors of diverse tapestry of America, it was refreshing to find this work accomplished in a colorful manner as well."--APA Division 44 Newsletter, Lisa Orban"A starting point is needed for someone who is unfamiliar with diversity issues and wants to begin to learn. Diversity in Human Interactions is an excellent starting point...Diversity in Human Interactions was written as an introductory textbook for the study of individual differences, and its purpose is to foster open and frank discussion of the issues surrounding diversity. This book accomplishes this purpose well."-- Gordon C. Nagayama Hall, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, University of Oregonshow more
