This anthology helps students understand issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality at the individual level--by including stories by or about people who have actually experienced discrimination, prejudice, or inequality because of who they were.

    • Explains to students why the issues discussed are important.
  • An introduction to each section.
    • Provides students with an overview about why the particular issue discussed in that section is important to understand.
  • Both academic and popular press articles are included.
    • Makes the material interesting and enjoyable for students to read.
  • Critical Thinking Questions and Getting Involved Activities.
    • Encourages students to move beyond rote memorization of the material toward a more active, engaged style of learning.
  • Coverage of sexuality issues--Not found in other texts.
    • Enables students to focus on this important aspect of inequality in the United States--including discrimination against gay men, lesbians, and transgenders.
  • Suggested Websites--At the end of each section.
    • Prompts students to use the Internet as a valuable tool for furthering their reading and understanding of text topics.
