Nesbitt, Eleanor
This book has been written for teachers, teacher trainers and their students, and others working with children and young people. It provides a valuable resource for those engaged in religious studies and South Asian studies, comprising a rich library of data relevant to current debates in these fields. Drawing on field studies of children of South Asian and other backgrounds in Britain, Nesbitt argues the value to schools of teachers adopting an ethnographic approach in intercultural education. Examples from primary, secondary and higher education demonstrate the urgent need for teachers and others to be better informed of cultural diversity and to understand the interconnections between ethnographic studies, pastoral care, the curriculum, and international events. "Intercultural Education" examines a wide variety of issues, including spirituality, identity formation, the ways in which 'beliefs' and 'practices' are represented, stereotyping communities, being a Christian at school, and the role of caste. The book contains Practical Guidelines for teachers, as well as a Glossary, covering pastoral care, racism, liaison with parents, recognising the diversity of language, etc. 204pp.

Grant, Carl A.
This is a work specifically written to encourage research into multicultural education and to help researchers work through some of the inherent problems that face schools who have to deal with the challenge of educating numbers of different groups of students in a fair and equitable manner. The first part covers the marginalization of the discourse in multicultural education, dealing with the way in which traditional teaching writing has not acknowledged the validity of multicultural intellectual thought. The second part tackles the conduct of research in multicultural education, highlighting manifestations of inequality between cultural groups and giving guidance on useful research directions. The social impact of multiculturalism in education is covered in Part 3 and incorporates an analysis of state multicultural education programmes. 267pp.
