Summary: Most contemporary work on education that takes into account differences among students in schools in the United States focuses on African American and white students, rather than recognizing the complexity of the current population. Beyond Black and White open s a discussion of diversity that goes beyond the notion that white or black can be looked at as any kind of homogeneous groupings. While numerous studies focus on the ways in which schools privilege some groups
of children and marginalize others, such work tends to construe differences along a narrowly constructed black-white dichotomy. Beyond Black and White forces the reader to abandon this construction.

"I like this text because of its immediate accessibility to the reader, the great diversity of groups represented, the theoretical perspectives of the authors, and the good balance of theory, research, field accounts, and the personal voices that are retained in these accounts. I can think of no single text that combines all the elements present in this edited volume."
