Summary

This unique text-reader was written to provide students with a variety of perspectives on the interlocking nature of race, class, and gender at the micro- and macro-levels of society. This book contains the essential components of a comprehensive text and provides articles that demonstrate the interconnectedness of these three systems of inequality. All articles were selected with two purposes in mind: (1) to reflect the diversity that is life in the United States today and, whenever possible, (2) to show how people are affected by the intertwining nature of race, class, and gender in daily life. Most articles are reprints of complete journal articles or entire chapters from recent books. Students gain an in-depth look at the history, theory, and methods that inform social science research on pressing social issues, such as diversity and inequalities based on race, class, and gender.

Features

  • Substantive editorial introductions to Part One, Two and Three include clearly stated theories and key concepts which are set forth in definition form and highlighted by bold typeface.
  • Each article begins with a brief overview and "Looking Ahead" questions to help students focus on key issues and applicable theoretical perspectives.
  • "Questions for Understanding and Critical Thinking" at the end of each article assist students in retaining central ideas and developing critical thinking skills.
  • An in-depth Instructor's Manual and Test Bank provides teaching suggestions, such as class presentation and discussion suggestions, critical writing assignments, further readings, and available films, and also provides a mini-test bank of multiple choice questions. Includes a chart correlating topics in introductory sociology and social problems with the articles.
