A general student reference of uncommon interest, examining American history and society through the experience of racial, ethnic, national, religious, and other marginalized groups (including children, disabled people, and gays and lesbians) whose experiences and views have often been excluded from the mainstream of American history. The encyclopedia focuses on key multicultural concepts, events, people, places, and organizations in alphabetical entries from the A. Philip Randolph Institute to the (anti-Mexican American) zoot-suit riots of 1943. The shortest entries are brief, 100-word biographies of significant people past and present. Signed articles on major subjects such as colonialism, sexual harassment, assimilation, and civil rights contain up to 5,000 words. Many entries are accompanied by photographs, maps, diagrams, and charts. Volume 6 includes a time line, multicultural resource directory, filmography, bibliography, subject list, and index.
