9780023454028: Critical Issues in Contemporary Culture
From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: This multicultural, thematic reader examines the meaning of culture and literacy and the importance of cultural literacy through 70 contemporary selections bearing on issues of gender, race, and ethnicity. Key Topics: The nine thematic chapters include “The Macho Myth,” “Family Images,” and “Work, Social Class, and Ethnicity: Sharing the American Dream.” An introductory chapter shows readers that a culture and literacy are contested terms whose meanings have changed over time, and that culture is often delineated by how it defines and uses literacy. The remainder of the book features selections by a variety of contemporary authors, including Joyce Carol Oates, Alice Walker, Louise Erdrich, David Updike, and E. D. Hirsch, Jr.
