From the Publisher:
RACE, CLASS, & GENDER: AN ANTHOLOGY demonstrates how the complex intersection between race, class, and gender (and also sexuality) shapes the human experience. Timely and diverse, this collection of articles by various authors addresses important and often controversial topics, such as prison, affirmative action, Muslim life in America, and the working poor, to provide readers with many different perspectives. 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.
