"Critical Multiculturalism and Intersectionality in a Complex World offers a multidimensional approach to examining inequalities in the world and offers practical examples to elucidate experience. The varied frameworks on identity formation and development offer practical ways to facilitate critical self- awareness. Employing intersectionality in understanding power and positionality centers critical consciousness to the workings of processes of domination and subjugation and, therefore, the differential experiences. The book moves the discourse on the concepts, diversity, multiculturalism, and inequalities from narrow, over-simplified versions to working complex discussions that take into account the global, social, political, and cultural experiences of power."
-Otrude N. Moyo, PhD, MA, MSW, Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Social Work, University of Michigan-Flint

Teaching with this well-written book makes some of the classroom's most difficult conversations easier to navigate with confidence and clarity."
