This Updated Fifth Editionreplaces the Fifth Edition of this text (ISBN 978-1-4129-5862-2) and comes with a new bonus introductory chapter on the Obama election, plus a new convenient paperback format - and a new, even lower price of only $75.00.

Joseph F. Healey's Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, Updated Fifth Edition builds upon the bestselling status of the four 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.
