Overview

This unique book was written to provide readers with a variety of perspectives on the interlocking nature of race, class, and gender at the micro- and macro- levels of society. This book 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. Readers 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.
