“The choice of readings in Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Social Class: Dimensions of Inequality and Identity is better than my current text in terms of inequality and steps of closing the gaps.” (Dr. Deden Rukmana)
“I really like how Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Social Class: Dimensions of Inequality and Identity deals with underlying concepts rather than difference by x, y, or z.” (Ana Villalobos)
“I appreciate the historical, theories of difference, and identity issues as fundamental for understanding diversity….There appears to be a logical and progressive flow from one section to the other, ending with a constructive note with tools for social change.” (Carmen I. Aponte, Ph.D.)
Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Social Class: Dimensions of Inequality and Identity, Second Edition, is an anthology of readings that explores the ways these social statuses shape our experiences and impact our life chances in today. Susan Ferguson includes many of the leading experts in the field, and reflects the many approaches used by scholars and researchers to understand this important and evolving subject. The book is organized around broad topics (Identity, Power and Privilege, Social Institutions, etc.), rather than categories of difference (Race, Gender, Class, Sexuality) to underscore a fundamental insight. Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality do not exist in isolation; they often intersect with one another to produce social inequalities and form the bases of our identities in society. New to the Second Edition is a streamlined design and format, 8 new readings and 60 readings overall (4 fewer than the previous edition), and an alternate table-of-contents to help instructors match the readings to a syllabus organized by categories of inequality and difference (Race, Ethnicity, Gender, Sexuality, Social Class).
