Readings for Diversity and Social Justice (3RD 13 Edition)by Maurianne Adams
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Readings for Diversity and Social Justice is the market leading anthology to cover the full scope of social oppression from a social justice standpoint. With full sections dedicated to racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism, and ableism, as well as transgenderism, ethno-religious oppression, and adult and ageism this bestselling text goes far beyond the range of traditional readers. New essay selections in each section have been carefully chosen to keep topic coverage timely and readings accessible and engaging for students. The interactions among these topics are highlighted throughout to stress the interconnections among oppressions in everyday life.
Each thematic section is divided into three parts: Contexts, Personal Voices, and Next Steps and Actions. Both theoretical essays and personal reflections are represented in order to stress critical thinking through highly engaging and accessible material. Next Steps and Actions challenge readers to take action by example.
Retaining the key features and organization that has made Readings an indispensable text for teaching issues of social justice while simultaneously updating and expanding its coverage, this new edition features:
For over ten years, Readings for Diversity and Social Justice has been the go-to anthology for the broadest possible coverage of issues related to identity and oppression from a social justice perspective. This highly-anticipated second edition breaks even further ground, boasting over 40 more readings than previously available, updated and original section introductions, and three entirely new chapter sections on Religious Oppression, Transgender Oppression, and Ageism/Adultism. As with the first edition, each chapter section is divided into Contexts, Personal Voices, and Next Steps. The first two parts provide vivid portraits of the meaning of diversity and the realities of oppression. The third part challenges the reader to take action to end oppressive behavior and affirm diversity and social justice.a
Added new features to this edition include:
Offering over one-hundred and thirty selections from some of the foremost scholars in a wide range of fields, Readings for Diversity and Social Justice, Second Edition is the indispensible volume for every student, teacher, and social justice advocate.a
