about

With debates on the relationship between cultural diversity and the role of schools raging on both sides of the Atlantic, the time is apt for a philosophical work that shines new light on the issues involved and that brings a fresh perspective to a political and emotive discussion.

Here Burtonwood brings the writing of British philosopher Isaiah Berlin to bear on the subject of multiculturalism in schools, the first time that his work has been applied to matters of education.

Tackling the often-contradictory issues surrounding liberal pluralism, this book poses serious questions for the education system in the US and in the UK.

Neil Burtonwood is Senior Lecturer in Educational Studies; he taught in high schools for over a decade. He is the author ofThe Culture Concept in Educational Studies and a regular contributor to research journals.
