This volume has emerged out of a collaborative Network of Excellence (NoE) project funded by the European Commission. The NoE is designed to strengthen excellence on 'Sustainable Development in a Diverse World'. It integrates European research capabilities across disciplines and countries to provide society and polity with tools for managing cultural diversity as a key element in sustainable development. The Network comprises 32 Institutes from Europe and beyond. It has led to a growing realisation that scholars and practitioners need to be aware of each other's intellectual inspiration when approaching the relationship between cultural diversity and sustainable development. The Network's overall objective is to set out policy recommendations which have wide application in Europe. The bibliography provides a bridge across the linguistic and intellectual traditions that currently set scholars and practitioners in the field of diversity management apart from each other. It is drawn from partners active within the NoE, representing Europe and key nations such as the USA and India, where diversity is embraced as the essence of society and development. All contributions are in English, many of them reviewing non-English-language items. The bibliography covers both classical and contemporary perspectives. Most entries address academic articles and books; a select number of films and novels are also included. This unusually wide range enhances cross-cultural understanding of diversity and its management in society and will improve communication across linguistic barriers on issues that affect the management of organisations and cities in Europe. The volume is a vital tool for anyone conducting primary research in diversity regulation, and an inspiration for practitioners in the field of diversity management and policy implementation. Subject, Discipline, Geographic and Diversity indexes will facilitate searches across many perspectives on diversity and its management.
