Written in a clear, consistent style, the Third Edition of the best-selling text Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class by Joseph Healey eloquently describes and, at times, simply serves as a conduit for, a broad spectrum of experiences related to race, ethnicity, gender, and class. Featuring in-depth analyses of diversity within groups, as well as the multiple interactions between them, Joseph Healey addresses the experiences of women, and many other minority groups, throughout the text. "Narrative Portraits" are integrated into each chapter and provide students with first person accounts and observations from a wide variety of people. At the end of each chapter, "Current Debates" present important issues through the ideas and writings of prominent scholars. In addition, Photo Essays are included at the end of many chapters, visually reinforcing key concepts in a dramatic and memorable fashion.
