Summary:
  • "There is now a widespread realisation in Australia that not enough is understood about the consequences of the massive immigration of the past four decades. The articles in Mosaic or Melting Pot represent an important contribution to the intellectual and practical discussion of the substantial social issues which have arisen from the mixed ethnic origin of the Autralian community. The editors have attempted the difficult task of striking a balance between attending to practical inquiries and recognising underlying principles or theories. Part 1 is concerned with the basic principles and processes involved in cultural mix. Part 2 confronts the fundamental behavioural issues of thought and language, the antecedents to communication and schooling. Educational systems and processes in realtion to cultural differences are considered in Part 3. Finally, in Part 4, issues relating to the multicultural society beyond the school are explored." book jacket.
