"The book's clarity and succinctness increase its accessibility to both researchers and practitioners... Yamane successfully argues the need for a multicultural curriculum by attempting to bridge the arguments of those for and against such a requirement [and] pushes the reader to not be satisfied with the current marginalization of the multicultural curricular requirement as only one or two courses of a student's general education requirement."

"This account of recent higher education history is a study in the power of students to affect their education."

"In an interesting and well-written analysis of two key cases, Yamane identifies and analyzes recent student movements oriented toward advancing multicultural curricula. He does an excellent job of situating these movements within the larger landscape of higher education."

"This is a meticulously researched and theoretically well-informed study that illuminates how student demands for multiculturalism in the curriculum become education innovations that may ultimately be incorporated into the normal practices and enduring structures of higher education. Yamane shows well how efforts for broad-scale social change are simultaneously advanced and blunted by organizational and institutional intricacies."
