Editorial Reviews

'Will Kymlicka's editorial introduction...is a masterpiece of lucid exposition which traces a thread of connection and debate through the book. Equally important in this respect is his thoughtful organization of the book which frames the subject in a clear and logical way. As a result, students as well as academics will find this an extremely useful text...This book is most notable for clarifying without oversimplifying a complex and urgent area.' Michael O'Donnell, Theoretical Criminology, Vol.1 No.4 1997


'This is a very useful collection ... the collection brings together in one volume some of the best articles on a very important subject. It is logically structured, with an excellent introduction by Will Kymlicka, which puts the articles in their political and intellectual context.' Margaret Moore, University of Waterloo, Canada, Nations and Nationalism, Vol. 3, Part 1 - 1997


'The Rights of Minority Cultures presents sixteen essays representative of the debate, with an introduction and a very useful guide to further reading by Kymlicka. It is the first such reader of the new debate to become available and will be an essential resource for those new to the topics and to the student courses that have sprung up and will proliferate.' Tariq Modood, Political Quarterly


'If multiculturalism does emerge as a major topic of academic Political Theory in Britain, it will be in no small measure due to the work of the Canadian Will Kymlicka ... an essential resource for those new to the topics and to the student courses that have sprung up and will proliferate.' Political Quarterly

'Kymlicka has almost instantly become one of the most discussed authors in the new political philosophy of multiculturalism ... [this book] an essential resource for those new to the topics and to the student courses that have sprung up and will proliferate.' Political Quarterly


'This collection of essays has been brought together by the distinguished political theorist Will Kymlicka, to promote better theoretical understanding of the issues underlying the recent upsurge in ethnic and national consciousness and conflict.' Patrick Thornberry, International Affairs


'This book provides an excellent collection of articles focusing on the most important issues confronting multiethnic and multinational societies today ... It is sorely needed in the literature and provides a brilliant examination of the diverse issues involving ethnocultural and multicultural groups in our Western democracies.' Subhas Ramcharan, Canadian Public Policy


'A timely publication ... a text which will be used almost exclusively either by those reading for a degree, or who are studying beyond first degree level.' Talking Politics


'To his fellow liberals, Kymlicka's book will be received as a tour de force. It is certainly a model of theoretical clarification.' Res Publica Vol. III, no.1 [1997]
