Review quote

As societies located in North America, Western Europe, and elsewhere are growing increasingly multicultural and multiracial in nature, social scientists, educators, service providers, and policy makers are confronted with the difficult task of understanding the new generations of immigrant and refugee children growing up in our midst. In this volume, a team of leading experts provides new information and guidelines essential to achieving this goal. They discuss a broad range of pertinent topics and are especially successful in linking basic research findings to policy recommendations and the perspectives of service providers. -- Uwe Gielen, St. Francis Collegeshow more
