Inclusive education is a complex and problematic concept that raises many questions. A team of prominent academics present fresh and critical perspectives on these issues, drawing upon their global resources and knowledge. The over-arching theme of this book is that social, political, economic and cultural contexts play a central role in determining whether or not inclusive education is implemented in a range of regions and countries around the world. A series of original and provocative conclusions is presented, such as: inclusive education means creating a single system of education, which serves all children inclusive education is a site of conflicting paradigms of children with special needs, centering on a psycho-medical model and a socio-political model while many countries seem committed to inclusive education in their rhetoric, legislation and policies, in practice this often falls short. This major landmark resource is suitable for educational policy makers, researchers, teacher educators, students and international agencies with interests in education.

Poverty and inequality in Latin America are easily recognizable in the faces of women, Afro-descendents, the indigenous, people with disabilities, victims of HIV/AIDS, and other groups outside the societal mainstream. Social Inclusion and Economic Development in Latin America reviews the common features of these excluded populations, including their invisibility in official statistics and the stigma, discrimination, and disadvantages they have long endured. But it also examines the region's inclusionary policies and programs that can improve access by these groups to the quality social services and economic and political resources these groups need to level the playing field. Case studies examine ethnic and racial political organization, gender quotas, and labor markets across the region, and social exclusion in Brazil, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, and Peru. Comparative studies summarize social inclusion policies of both the European Union and selected countries on the Continent.

Dr. Herbert Grossman recaps a self-described "adventure" of more than four decades during which he has worked with students who exhibit emotional and behavioral problems and also with teachers who aspire to work with these young people. He shares the amusements, frustrations, and, most importantly, insights gathered during his worldwide odyssey. The author has included an abundance of anecdotes from his work with children and adolescents and with students in the departments of regular education, special education, psychology and psychiatry of sixteen universities in the United States, Africa, Europe, and Latin America. Throughout, he describes the mistakes he made, as well as misconceptions and misunderstandings, and how these can be avoided. He also describes the positive things he has learned as a result of his formal studies in clinical psychology, neuropsychology, and the biological basis of behavior, as well as informal explorations of multicultural gender issues. The book will provide regular and special education teachers and teachers-in-training with some useful information, models, and shortcuts in their attempts to help students.
