Readings for Diversity and Social Justiceby Maurianne Adams
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
Book News Annotation:
Thirteen American academics and trainers present a second edition anthology for students, educators, facilitators, and social justice advocates, addressing issues of identity and oppression from a social justice perspective. Linking theory with practice, the 138 selections explore contemporary inequality, social hierarchy, and systemic oppression, and note examples of people taking action for empowerment, equity, liberation, and sustained social change. The text contains updated and revised sections from the 2000 edition covering conceptual frameworks, racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, and visions and strategies for working for social justice, and also includes new sections on religious oppression, transgender oppression, and ageism/adultism. The second edition features 40 new readings; updated and original section introductions; revised and updated resources, references, and examples; and a companion website. No subject index, but does include a table identifying an array of main subjects covered in each reading. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
