Praise for Gender, Race, Class, and Health

"More and more students in public health, sociology, and anthropology are studying these intersections but this is arguably the first book to truly do justice to the topic."
—Meredith Minkler, professor of Health and Social Behavior, University of California, Berkley, and coeditor, Community Participatory Research for Health

"Weaving a beautiful tapestry out of the cutting edge views of an outstanding group of interdisciplinary scholars, this edited volume provides new depth and focus to the study of intersectionality and health."
—Sherman A. James, Susan B. King Professor of Public Policy Studies, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina

"At last, a groundbreaking book highlighting the health consequences of the intersections of race, gender, and social class! Linking public policy and cultural analysis to ethnographic and biomedical data, the volume provides important insights into how intersecting inequalities have complex consequences on the ground and under the skin."
—Alan H. Goodman, president-elect, American Anthropological Association and professor, Biological Anthropology and Natural Science, Hampshire College, Amherst, Massachusetts

"While delineating theories as to forces operating within the social context, it moves beyond to practice and to thoughtful policy prescriptions and advocacy."
—June Jackson Christmas, professor emeritus, Behavioral Medicine, City University of New York Medical School, and past president, American Public Health Association
