Cultural Unity and Diversity in New States (Separata)

Moskos, Charles, & Wendell Bell, Cultural Unity and Diversity in New States, Separata from Teachers College Record, vol. 66, no. 8, May, 1965.

Human diversity is a source of human problems. Like most treasures, the great advantages of individual and cultural differences are not had without cost and control. Nowhere is this poignant aspect of the human condition more apparent than in the newly emerging nations, where education is relied upon as a primary tool for achievement of cultural unity. This analysis of the difficulties posed by cultural pluralism was prepared by Dr. Moskos and Dr. Bell during a year at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford, California, and under a grant by the Carnegie Corporation to the Political Change Committee of the University of California, Los Angeles.
