A Different Mirror for Young People: A History of Multicultural America
By Ronald Takaki & adapted by Rebecca SefoffReading Level: High School, Middle School
Genre: Non Fiction
Publisher: Seven Stories Press 2012
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.
