Multiculturalism is the word of the day, be it in literature or in any other field. When at a time the concept of ‘melting pot’ was at its pinnacle, now the trend has taken a turn where minorities assimilate themselves with the main stream society and thus there is a plethora of writings and literature. All aspects related to social integration, racial segregation, cultural assimilation, issues related to the indigenous and the minority, race and ethnicity, all fall under the banner of multiculturalism. Multiculturalism, hence is not just a diverse population alone; responding to challenges which encompass all the above is a real fete for a writer or an observer and still more a person who is part of this ‘multicultural’ behaviour. It is under this view that multiculturalism was taken into consideration for a multiple analysis by various writers.This book titled The Multicultural Matrix: Shifting Paradigms is an endeavour to bring together various aspects of multiculturalism within the pages of a few leaves of the book.
