Mara Sapon-Shevin
Professor of Inclusive Education, Syracuse University

This important new volume is published at a crucial time with regards to the idea of inclusion in education. It appears during a period when the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is calling for international efforts to promote inclusive and equitable quality education, and lifelong learning opportunities for all. This has brought the issue to the forefront of policy developments in many countries. Directly relevant to this global agenda for change, the chapters set out to take stock of scholarship on diversity and inclusion in education in the first two decades of the 21st century, and to look forward to future trends and new directions. In so doing, it draws on a remarkable range of sources from around the world. It also includes chapters that are written from an impressive range of perspectives. I suspect that this handbook will be a major source of stimulation to many of us who are concerned with this crucial agenda.

Mel Ainscow CBE
Emeritus Professor of Education, University of Manchester

This book is far from apolitical, and much more than a handbook. It presents high quality research by a vast array of authors, as well as in-depth critiques of the policies and systems that exist around the world to include, and exclude, individuals and groups of people based on disability, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality. The book carefully draws from a range of expertise. There is much to be gained from reading of practices in other countries and societies, as well as critiquing the way in which we all view diversity and inclusion within our own experiences, paradigms, and frames of reference.
