Product Details


“[A Different Mirror is] a splendid achievement, a bold and refreshing new approach to our national history. The research is meticulous, the writing powerful and eloquent, with what can only be called an epic sweep across time and cultures.” —Howard Zinn

“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.”Skipping Stones

A Different Mirror advances a truly humane sense of American possibility.” —Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

“The ‘mirror’ that Ronald Takaki holds up to the United States reflects a multicultural history of oppression and exploitation, but also struggle, solidarity, and community. In the most profound sense, this is a people’s history of our country. Takaki shows what has torn us apart, yet what knits us together. This young people’s version of A Different Mirror will introduce a new generation to Takaki’s pathbreaking scholarship.” —Bill Bigelow, curriculum editor, Rethinking Schools, and co-director, Zinn Education Project
