Overview

Joseph F. Healey’s Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, Sixth Edition builds upon the bestselling status of the prior editions, praised for the author’s writing style and the various effective pedagogical features that ensure students engage with core concepts in a meaningful way. With many updates and revisions, this edition once again uses sociological theory to tell the story of race and other socially constructed inequalities in the United States with consistency and clarity. Chapter-ending current debates based on the writings of prominent scholars spark classroom discussion on important issues, and first-person accounts, “Narrative Portraits,” are threaded throughout the text to bring life to a variety of topics.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. Gonzalo Santos
"The Healey book is the best undergraduate textbook, in my opinion, to focus on the U.S. experience of peoplehood…"
Carol Ward
"I continue to be very impressed with the conceptual material included in the text related to prejudice, racism, assimilation,
stratification and pluralism and their relation to larger social change processes. Students benefits tremendously from learning about the perspectives that relate to understanding race relations occurring at multiple levels:
family, small group, community, state and global."
