Overview

Gender, Race, and Class is a critical overview of these three well-known dimensions of the social world. The study of gender, race and class as a combined topic has evolved over the years, and this concise, accessible volume shows why the subject continues to resonate both in and outside the academy.

  • Examines recent scholarship to how one’s gender, with the added dimension of race and class, can impact one’s experiences in society.
  • Probes deeper under the surface of different biases to see whether common elements of discrimination may also be at work.
  • Includes a conceptual “vocabulary” that describes how gender, race and class interrelate.
