In 2007, award-winning editor Tara L. Masih put out a call for Intercultural Essays dealing with the subjects of "culture, race, and a sense of place." The prizewinners are gathered for the first time in a ground-breaking anthology that explores many facets of culture not previously found under one cover. The powerful, honest, thoughtful voices-Native American, African American, Asian, European, Jewish, White-speak daringly on topics not often discussed in the open, on subjects such as racism, war, self-identity, gender, societal expectations. Their words will entertain, illuminate, take you to distant lands, and spark important discussions about our humanity, our culture, and our place within society and the natural world. _______ REVIEWS _______ "This collection of essays provides a lens into intercultural experiences that will offer important insights for teachers as well as students...and can lead to a greater understanding of and appreciation for our global community." - Dr. Zaline M. Roy-Campbell, Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Program in Teaching English Language Learners, Syracuse University "This contemporary collection of essays will be an invaluable resource. I'm especially impressed by the range of themes..." - Mary McLaughlin Slechta, ESL instructor, Nottingham High School.
