In today's global world and mutlicultural society, it is important to reach out and move beyond the immediate and parochial to an acknowledgment of pluralism and diversity within and among cultures. This does not mean blending, blurring, or assimilating, but rather celebrating diversity. This book invites readers to look beyond their own society and culture, and hear the voices of immigrant Americans, Native Americans, and others. This anthology strives to promote understanding of diverse cultures. It does so through the presentation of essays and stories dealing with eight subtopics on cultural diversity, including tradition, education, gender issues, work and popular culture. Selections cover every rhetorical genre, such as a first-person narrative and persuasion. Also included is a new section on popular culture inviting readers to assess how consumerism, television, movies, music, and cyberspace inform their identities, lifestyles and values. Educators, writers, and persons working with, or simply interested in, people of other cultures.
