Race, Class, & Gender: An Anthology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Featuring an accessible and diverse collection of more than 60 writings by a variety of scholars, RACE, CLASS, and GENDER demonstrates how the complex intersection of people's race, class, and gender (and also sexuality) shapes their experiences, and who they become as individuals. Each reading addresses a timely--and often controversial--topic, such as the sub-prime mortgage crisis, health care inequality, undocumented students, and social media, thus giving readers a multidimensional perspective on a number of social issues. To provide an analytical framework for the articles, co-editors Andersen and Hill Collins begin each section with an in-depth introduction.

Synopsis:

To give the readings analytical context and highlight key social issues, each of the text's four major parts begins with an in-depth introduction by co-editors Andersen and Hill Collins.
