INTERVIEW: Carlos Cortes has been involved in the growth of multiculturalism from the 1960s to the present day. He is a Professor Emeritus of History at the University of California, Riverside. Available in-person in California and by request. Cortes has written the compelling story of his life in this thought-provoking collection of essays about diversity, society, and education. In many ways, Cortes's personal and professional story is the story of the multicultural movement itself. Containing thirteen momentous essays, this volume gives witness to the struggles and successes that Cortes and many others have experienced while striving to create a place for the voices, values, and visions of racial and ethnic groups in our culturally diverse nation and shrinking world.
