American educational institutions have often served as the site of deculturalization (the process of destroying a people's culture and replacing it with a new culture) for oppressed minorities in the United States. Spring (City U. of New York) reviews these historical processes of deculturalization in individual chapters on Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic/Latin Americans. In this new edition, he adds a chapter on the Civil Rights Movement and the struggle for multicultural education.
