Book Description

April 25, 2006 0495006890 978-0495006893 6
RACE, CLASS, AND, GENDER, includes many interdisciplinary readings. The author's selection of very accessible articles show how race, class, and gender shape people's experiences, and help students to see the issues in an analytic, as well as descriptive way. The book also provides conceptual grounding in understanding race, class, and gender; has a strong historical and sociological perspective; and is further strengthened by conceptual introductions by the authors. Students will find the readings engaging and accessible, but may gain the most from the introduction sections that highlight key points and relate the essential concepts. Included in the collection of readings are narratives aimed at building empathy, and articles on important social issues such as prison, affirmative action, poverty, immigration, and racism, among other topics.

Great book for all 1st year Pyschology students who should do their inner work on Class, Race, and Stratification in the USA/Global issues on transference, counter-transference etc. based on our individual biases (Covert/overt) towards our clients as well as daily "Stereotype Threat" issues that are pervasive in all societies.

All providers/folks in general have their persona stories and upbringings that need to be explored deeply and accessed on a deeper level before engaging in the practice of healing and supporting others. This book opens one's eyes so they can being their work in understanding how their perceptions and unconscious issues have played a large part in their daily opportunities or lack their of depending on status, class, and economic opportunities in a stratified society.

This book was amazing in its scope and varying perspectives on issues concerning "minority" Americans. Both editors and incredible and I personally am really looking forward to reading Patricia Hill Collins' lastest book, Black Sexual Politics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book review April 8, 2009
This book is very that it has different articles that point out the social inequalities that we may not see in our society. The articles have different view points that explain what the author is trying to introduce to its readers. I think this book is very interesting and it helps point out some issues in our society that we may not ordinarily see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really (not joking) great book! December 18, 2010

Text books are really dry and hard to read (for me) but this one was really good and I actually learned a lot. If you have to buy this book, don't freak out it isn't bad - I even kept mine when the course was over :)
