By integrating issues of diversity throughout the book, Ferguson helps students see the inter-relationships of race, social class, and gender, and the ways in which they have shaped the experiences of all people in society.

✏Bundle Ferguson Race Gender Sexuality and Social Class 2e Healey Race Ethnicity Gender and Class 7e Book Summary : We offer these texts bundled together at a discount for your students. Ferguson: Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Social Class, 2e An eye-opening exploration of how socials statuses intersect to shape our identities and produce inequalities. In this fully edited and streamlined Second Edition, Susan Ferguson has carefully selected readings that open readers' eyes to the ways that social statuses shape our experiences and impact our life chances. The anthology represents many of the leading voices in the field and reflects the many approaches used by scholars and researchers to understand this important and evolving subject. The anthology is organized around broad topics (Identity, Power and Privilege, Social Institutions, etc.), rather than categories of difference (Race, Gender, Class, Sexuality) to underscore this fundamental insight: race, class, gender, and sexuality do not exist in isolation; they often intersect with one another to produce social inequalities and form the bases of our identities in society. Healey: Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, 7e Joseph F. Healey and Eileen O'Brien's Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, Seventh Edition once again uses sociological perspectives to tell the story of race and other socially constructed inequalities with consistency and clarity. Through a vivid writing style and engaging pedagogical features, the authors ensure that readers engage with core concepts in a meaningful way. The text conveys much of the richness and varieties of experience within minority groups, instead of treating them as single, undifferentiated entities. Although it focuses mainly on the minority groups in the United States, it compares group relations in the United States with other societies as well.
