"This best-selling anthology expertly explores concepts of identity, diversity, and inequality as it introduces students to issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality in the United States. The 120 selections in the Eleventh Edition -- including 46 new readings -- focus on topics such as citizenship, immigration, sexualized violence, environmental racism, voting rights, the criminalization of 'living while black,' reproductive justice, the continuing effects of colonialism on Indigenous people, growing up in poverty, LGBTQ activism, and more. New selections include foundational pieces of intersectional analysis from Kimberlé Crenshaw, Dorothy Allison, and Cherríe Moraga, as well as writings from the founders and leaders of key contemporary social movements such as Tarana Burke on the Me Too movement, Alicia Garza on Black LIves Matter, Chief Arvol Looking Horse on Standing Rock, and Gaby Pacheco on the Dreamers." -From publisher.
This book explores how class-based resources and interests embedded in large organizations are linked to powerful structures and processes which in turn are rapidly polarizing the U.S. into a highly unequal, 'double diamond' class structure. The authors show how and why American class membership in the 21st century is based on an organizationally-based distribution of critical resources including income, investment capital, credentialed skills verified by elite schools, and social connections to organizational leaders.
The Routledge International Handbook of Race, Class, and Gender chronicles the development, growth, history, impact, and future direction of race, gender, and class studies from a multidisciplinary perspective. The research in this subfield has been wide-ranging, including works in sociology, gender studies, anthropology, political science, social policy, history, and public health. As a result, the interdisciplinary nature of race, gender, and class and its ability to reach a large audience has been part of its appeal. The Handbook provides clear and informative essays by experts from a variety of disciplines, addressing the diverse and broad-based impact of race, gender, and class studies. The Handbook is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students who are looking for a basic history, overview of key themes, and future directions for the study of the intersection of race, class, and gender. Scholars new to the area will also find the Handbook’s approach useful. The areas covered and the accompanying references will provide readers with extensive opportunities to engage in future research in the area.
The first interdisciplinary reference to cover the socioeconomic and political history, the movements, and the changing face of poverty in the United States. Poverty in the United States: An Encyclopedia of History, Politics, and Policy follows the history of poverty in the United States with an emphasis on the 20th century, and examines the evolvement of public policy and the impact of critical movements in social welfare such as the New Deal, the War on Poverty, and, more recently, the "end of welfare as we know it." Encompassing the contributions of hundreds of experts, including historians, sociologists, and political scientists, this resource provides a much broader level of information than previous, highly selective works. With approximately 300 alphabetically-organized topics, it covers topics and issues ranging from affirmative action to the Bracero Program, the Great Depression, and living wage campaigns to domestic abuse and unemployment. Other entries describe and analyze the definitions and explanations of poverty, the relationship of the welfare state to poverty, and the political responses by the poor, middle-class professionals, and the policy elite. 300 A-Z entries on topics related to poverty and social welfare, including the political discovery of poverty, antipoverty policies, and debates about legislation Includes five introductory chronological essays covering U.S. poverty since the colonial era, giving a historical foundation to the entries in the book Contributions from over 200 distinguished scholars and experts Numerous illustrations and primary source documents dispersed throughout the work
This annotated bibliography, a volume in the Greenwood series, Bibliographies and Indexes in Religious Studies, provides access to the numerous writings, from the 1960s through the 1990s, on feminism and Christian tradition. Major feminist theologians and sociologists are represented. As a guide to further research, this cross-disciplinary approach presents themes and issues in both a historical and a topical framework. An extensive overview of feminism in relation to the women's movement, women's studies, sociology and American religion introduces the literature and provides a historical context for the nearly one thousand entries that follow. Cross-referenced throughout, the literature is presented in six thematic categories that include introductory and background materials, feminism and the development of feminist theology, topical literatures in feminist theology, feminism and womanist theology, religious leadership of women, and responses and recent developments. Separate author, subject, and title indexes complete the volume.
Beginning with a survey of how the interplay of variables such as class, gender & race interact in the development of an individual in a pluralistic society, this text presents theories on how to integrate issues of class, gender & race into counselling theory.
Timely, relevant and extremely student-friendly, Andersen/Hill Collins' RACE, CLASS, AND GENDER: INTERSECTIONS AND INEQUALITIES, 10th edition, equips you with a multidimensional perspective on today's social issues. Written by two leading authorities in the field, this classic anthology uses a diverse collection of writings by a variety of scholars to demonstrate how the complex intersection of people's race, class, gender and sexuality shapes their experiences in U.S. society. Professors Andersen and Hill Collins begin each section with in-depth introductions to provide an analytical framework for understanding social inequality. Completely up-to-date, the readings cover current--and often controversial topics--including undocumented students, myths about immigrant crime, growing inequality, the role of social media in social movement mobilization, health care inequality and more.
This unique book was written to provide readers with a variety of perspectives on the interlocking nature of race, class, and gender at the micro- and macro- levels of society. This book provides articles that demonstrate the interconnectedness of these three systems of inequality. All articles were selected with two purposes in mind: (1) to reflect the diversity that is life in the United States today and, whenever possible, (2) to show how people are affected by the intertwining nature of race, class, and gender in daily life. Most articles are reprints of complete journal articles or entire chapters from recent books. Readers gain an in-depth look at the history, theory, and methods that inform social science research on pressing social issues, such as diversity and inequalities based on race, class, and gender.
