9780205182770: Understanding Diversity

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. Readers will find it easy to relate to this title, as every topic has been chosen based on its relevancy to college students. Students will emerge with an understanding of how the intersecting inequalities of race, gender, social class, sexuality, age, immigration status, and geographic location influence how various problems are socially and politically framed, and how they are differentially experienced.
