In the post 9/11 world, the idea of multiculturalism excites controversy. Some believe that it threatens civic unity and security, that it undermines human rights, or that it leads states to stray from crucial social goals such as the equal distribution of wealth. In the light of such heavy criticisms, this book provides a fresh examination of the political theory of multiculturalism and an introduction to the core debates. Monica Mookherjee considers reparations for historical injustice as a form of minority 'recognition', indigenous land rights and the toleration of religion and culture. The book evaluates each issue from the perspective of moral commitments to equality and freedom. An instructive text for students, as well as of great interest to researchers in the field, the book argues that while multicultural debates always appeal to values of equality and freedom, a deeper reason for respecting diversity lies in the human capability to plan a life in accordance with one's existing values and attachments.
