Diversity is not merely difference but differences that arise out of commonality, such as the humanity we all share. Justice implies equality in treatment, privilege, opportunity, or other arenas. Social justice has a connotation of what society ought to do or what society is doing to ensure just treatment of its members. Of course, these concepts require greater precision when used and are prone to misunderstanding and manipulation in contemporary usage. This work aims to clarify terminology used in popular vernacular and expose some of the nuances that we typically don't consider but profoundly impact our thinking, speech, and actions. Entries are alphabetically arranged, and each has a reference for those interested in additional research. Most entries provide an ind-depth treatment of their subject matters and are written so as to be accessible to the general reader. Examples include Able-ism, Bisexuality, Empathy, Freedom of speech, and Tokenism. Some main-level headings have two entries exploring either specialized aspects of that topic or presenting a different viewpoint on the issue. The clarity and depth of the entries make the set suitable for general readers as well as specialists looking to broaden their knowledge. . . .Recommended for the most academic libraries. (Publishers Weekly)
Voices for Diversity and Social Justice: A Literary Education Anthology captures the struggle for identity, the fight for recognition, the disillusion with school and the desire to be seen, to be included and to be counted. It is an unflinching look from the heart of our educational system at the segregation, bias and oppression that is part of the daily lives of so many students and teachers.
