Raymond V. Padilla is professor of education at Arizona State University. Miguel Montiel is professor in the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University.
Debatable Diversity: Critical Dialogues on Change in American Universities by Raymond Padilla and Manuel Montiel is a must read for anyone concerned about change in U.S. higher education. I found this book extremely informative, though provoking, and inspirational. Padilla and Montiel's open, frank and lively discussions are certain to serve as a guide for the next generation of academics and administrators who seek to engage the university as a place that should model the idelas of social justice and equity. Harvard Educational Review Gutsy in style and plain talking. There are lessons here for higher education, and not just for Chicanos. -- David C. Berliner, Regents' Professor Emeritus, Arizona State University
