A longtime professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of California at Berkeley, Ronald Takaki wasrecognized as one of the foremost scholars of American ethnic history and diversity. When the first edition of"A""Different Mirror"was published in 1993, "Publishers Weekly"called it "a brilliant revisionist history of Americathat is likely to become a classic of multicultural studies" and named it one of the ten best books of the year.Now Rebecca Stefoff, who adapted Howard Zinn's best-selling"A People's History of the United States"foryounger readers, turns the updated 2008 edition of Takaki's multicultural masterwork into"A Different Mirror for""Young People."
Drawing on Takaki's vast array of primary sources, and staying true to his own words whenever possible, "A""Different Mirror for Young People"brings ethnic history alive through the words of people, including teenagers, who recorded their experiences in letters, diaries, and poems. Like Zinn's"A People's History," Takaki's"A""Different Mirror"offers a rich and rewarding "people's view" perspective on the American story.
“This 375-page book would be an excellent way to include multi-ethnic materials in the classroom as a way to ensure that your students see their unique identities reflected in their coursework.”
