"Every potential adoptor will, inevitably, dissent from some of the formulations and arguments in American Cultural Pluralism and Law. It is simply that kind of text book. This also means that its ambitious and thoughtful materials, especially as revised for this third edition, should provide instructors with a broad platform on which to build a course of their own." - H-Net Reviews
"The new edition of this reference handbook will appeal to the general reader and graduate students interested in multicultural studies, law, political science, and interdisciplinary studies. The volume's main purpose is to examine the role of the law within a culturally pluralistic society, defined as a society that accepts many minority groups and cultural traditions." - Multicultural Review
