Overview

Out of 69 essays, 24 are new to this edition, including several that focus on the historical context in which race, class, and gender have emerged. Also new is the section, Cultural Institutions and the Production of Ideas which includes articles on language, popular culture, sports, and education. Other readings include personal stories by the contributors, and issue-oriented pieces about welfare reform, affirmative action, poverty, immigration, and racism. Contributors include June Jordan, Paula Gunn Allen, Barabara Ehrenreich, Cornel West, Patricia Williams, Gloria Steinem, Sucheng Chang, Naomi Wolf, and Marc Cooper. Central to the essays is the tenet that race, class, and gender are interrelated, and that there exist, despite individual choice, existing and pervasive systems of privilege and disadvantage. Includes a free four-month subscription to InfoTrac College Edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
