Pat K. Chew is Professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and is the author and co-author of numerous books and articles.
"This single volume covers the universe of cultural issues and ethnic conflict. Professor Pat Chew has revealed she has the secret heart of an anthropologist. This collection of materials from far-flung places is fascinating, made more so by the helpful notes and materials she employs to stitch them together." -Michael A. Olivas,Director of the Institute for Higher Education Law and Governance, University of Houston "At a time when ethnic conflicts seem unending and the rule of law is increasingly threatened, it is the responsibility of every thinking person to learn as much as possible about the ways in which law, conflict and culture affect one another and, in turn, the ways in which they affect us all. This new book offers a thought-provoking-and sometimes disturbing-medium for exploring the host of issues raised by the interrelationships between these concepts." -John M. Burkoff,Associate Dean and Professor of Law, University of Pittsburgh "This not only a wonderful book to read but one that will assist all of us as we travel across borders to work, explore and enjoy the wonders of other places." -John P. Tymitz,Chief Executive Officer, Institute of Shipboard Education "Covering groups as diverse as Finnish gypsies, Chicago Polish, Native Hawaiians, Israeli Druze, and African Americans, Pat Chew presents us with a global feast on conflict and culture. This multidisciplinary collection enables us to appreciate the complex interplay when race, ethnicity, gender, and culture confront both unwritten customs and formal legal systems." -Adrien Katherine Wing,author of Global Critical Race Feminism "Pat Chew makes an important contribution by bringing together voices that speak to this complex topic that is at the heart of the rapidly shrinking world we all are beginning to share and navigate together." -Syed Shariq,RGK Foundation Scholar, Stanford University
