Reviews for the second edition 'It is a great privilege to review this book, a brilliant and indeed much needed contribution to the literature on children in Britain. The work covers topics pertinent to a range of professions, it offers strategies for further developing our understanding and opportunities for improving our practice - in the new world of target setting, it enables us to work effectively... I have found this an inspiring book... The focus is sharp, knowledge sound and methods/strategies effective. Essential reading for all!'
Young Mind Magazine
A great strength of the book lies in its provision of practical examples of work with children and young people, and vivid, illustrative case studies. The book's most admirable quality is its provision of suggestions for practice, the examples it offers for strategies to tackle racism in schools, and the vivid case examples it gives... An extremely useful book. All those working with children and young people will find it invaluable in helping them to meet the needs of ethnic minority children.
Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry
Reviews for the first edition 'This book should have wide appeal to almost anybody who works with children from ethnic minorities. Overall an excellent book strongly recommended for most libraries and essential reading for anyone significantly involved in cross-cultural work.'
I am sure that this is a book which will become required reading for many professionals who work daily with the rich variety of individuals who are collectively labelled `ethnic minorities'... should be available to all who work with people in a professional/caring capacity.
