A longtime professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of California at Berkeley, Ronald Takaki was recognized as one of the foremost scholars of American ethnic history and diversity. When the first edition of  A   Different Mirror  was published in 1993,  Publishers Weekly  called it "a brilliant revisionist history of America that is likely to become a classic of multicultural studies" and named it one of the ten best books of the year. Now Rebecca Stefoff, who adapted Howard Zinn's best-selling  A People's History of the United States  for younger readers, turns the updated 2008 edition of Takaki's multicultural masterwork into  A Different Mirror for   Young People .

Drawing on Takaki's vast array of primary sources, and staying true to his own words whenever possible,  A   Different Mirror for Young People  brings ethnic history alive through the words of people, including teenagers, who recorded their experiences in letters, diaries, and poems. Like Zinn's  A People's History , Takaki's  A   Different Mirror  offers a rich and rewarding "people's view" perspective on the American story.
