Overview

Helps Students Relate Concepts of Diversity to their own Lives

Understanding Diversity, 1/e by Claire M. Renzetti and Raquel M. Kennedy-Bergen is composed of original contributions written by both well-known sociologists as well as newer voices whose cutting edge work is likely to significantly impact the field.
