Blurb/Shorttext:
This work represents a venture into a relatively untouched area-the need for cultural tolerance and understanding. Since universities are among the ideal places where young people could learn lifelong lessons as important as those taught in the classroom, it was believed of immense importance to assess the spaces in which tolerance is practiced and taught. Ethiopia, a multicultural nation with its higher learning institutions is taken as the specific focus of the study. The book is worth reading to help define and sharpen issues of tolerance and understanding to improve decisions. It could also encourage the adaptation of existing or/and new strategies so as to create intercultural competence in higher learning institutions (colleges and universities). Beyond this, this work is hoped to provoke conversations and stimulate creative initiatives rather than prescribe definitive solutions or recommendations on one approach to deal with the cultivation of the culture of tolerance and understanding.
