Editorial Reviews

Presents 102 readings gathered to present as full a picture as possible of the ways that various types of oppression have interacted with each other in American society. The readings are organized into eight thematic sections that respectively focus on: the social construction of difference; the way these issues have determined the construction of the concept of "citizen;" the role of privilege; the economics of oppression; consequences of inequality; race and gender issues in US law; the use of stereotypes, ideology, language, violence, and social control in the creation and maintenance of hierarchies; and finally, suggestions for moving beyond racism, classism, and sexism.
