Overview

Innovative and thought-provoking, this timely anthology expands the concept of privilege in America beyond the traditional limiters of being white and male. In addition to readings from well-known authors in the field, this edition includes pieces from contemporary scholars breaking new ground in superordinate studies. Seventeen carefully selected essays explore the multifaceted aspects of privilege; how race, gender, class, and sexual preference interact in the lives of those who are privileged by one or more of these identities. Written from a variety of viewpoints, personal and analytic, the essays in this volume help students understand that ''race'' can mean white people, ''gender'' can mean men, and ''sexuality'' can mean heterosexuals.
