    great book for any use

    I bought this book for a class, but unlike most college books (especially the more expensive ones, which I'd say this qualifies as...), I actually doubt I'll be selling this back at the end of the semester, because it's one of those books that is worth keeping. The books consists of essays on topics ranging from gender identity, racism in society today, reproductive rights, etc... all things that are extremely relevant in today's society and one would do well to think about more deeply, whether in college or just for one's general education and attempt to better understand one's role in society. Anyways, the essays in this books provide a very good foundation for that deeper thought; nearly all of the essays I've read so far are well-written and insightful, and definitely provoke further consideration into the topics.
