The 2011 Booklist Editors’ Choice awards for Reference Sources includes Multicultural America: An Encyclopedia of the Newest Americans (Greenwood/ABC-CLIO, 2011), by Ronald Bayor, Professor of History in the School of History, Technology, and Society.
Booklist wrote about Bayor's work, "With well-written and easy-to-understand essays, this encyclopedia includes 50 entries on America’s newest immigrants and would make an excellent addition to public, academic, and high-school libraries."
