Format: Hardcover
Collaboratively compiled and edited by Richard Shweder (Anthropologist and Professor of Human Development, University of Chicago), Martha Minow (Professor of Law, Harvard University), and Hazel Rose Markus (David-Brack Professor in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University), Engaging Cultural Differences: The Multicultural Challenge In Liberal Democracies offers an outstanding and highly recommended selection of scholarly essays by a series of educated and experienced authors who closely scrutiny of the principle of tolerance as applied to such diverse cultures and societies as Germany, France, India, South Africa, the United States, and more. From the good, the bad, and the ugly about assimilation, to male and female circumcision debates, to human rights and the American Anthropological Association, these college-level essays shed a discerning light on human nature at its best and worst worldwide.
