Editorial Reviews

Review

PetersCompletely on target! The organization, quality, and thoroughness are impressive....This would be valuable in introductory women's studies, education, and sociology courses.
–Jean O'Barr, co-editor of Women Imagine Change

An invaluable resource for teaching. The range of social differences and injustices covered is comprehensive and the diverse contributions are held together by strong and accessible introductions to each section.
–Stevi Jackson, author of Heterosexuality in Question

A highly readable and thought-provoking collection of theoretical and personal essays....[A] welcome supplement in courses which seek to actively engage students in learning about the barriers to and promises of social justice education.
–Lee Ann Bell, co-editor of Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice

Given that there has been an upsurge of narratives and statistical research on the 'other,' this book successfully combines multiple voices into one comprehensive piece. It is a wonder that so much depth can be covered given its breadth of diversity issues. Moreover, Readings for Diversity and Social Justice provides a very readable introduction to the key terms and conceptual frameworks underlying diversity and social justice. In addition, the book consists of essays that seek not only to inform, but also to empower readers..
–Journal of College Student Development

I found this book to be a fabulous accompaniment to the Teaching for Social Justice and Diversity book. It succeeds in trying to cover an extremely broad subject area.

I read this book cover to cover.

There is so much history in the book, well explained, it made me see how far back we have have been dealing with injustice across the world.

Prejudice, discrimination, oppression in all it's forms throughout the ages, including issues related to race, religion, gender and more. Every chapter is bringing historical facts making us realize how we are the way we are, and how we can learn to change this behavior.

Learning the roots of the problems is key, and this book does an excellent job at describing every aspect of our social backgrounds.

Definitely an important book to take into the classroom and a definite read for those of you who want to be part of the change.

This book is a great resource for readings on diversity. I'm always looking for articles to start discussion with others and prompt thoughts of my own. This book has articles on many topics from a variety of perspectives. It is also organized based on identity and also on aspect of social justice education (i.e. indexed as heterosexism and also privilege). I highly recommend it and its companion "teaching for diversity and social justice."

Format: Paperback
Had to buy/ read for a class finishing up my Master's Degree. Social Justice is an ideology rooted in hate. The readings aim to villainize anyone in an arbitrary position of privilege with little to no room for personal accountability or truly working with others to care for true pain and suffering. Absolute liberal filth.

I used this book in a class on "social diversity" that I took some time ago.

It's easy for people to claim that they are simply free from discrimination and prejudice, but everyone has something to learn from this collection of diverse readings.

So far I have only completed the section on racism, there were a few authors so dripping with anti-blackness (in a historically inaccurate way no less!) that I had to put the book down and could not complete their section. They did not discuss anti-black racism within people of color, but seemed more concerned proving that non-black people of color "are oppressed too'! by comparing their struggles to black people (and invalidating and minimizing black people's experiences). Why can't you prove that other people are oppressed by just discussing your own experience without throwing in all of this anti-blackness? I would honestly rather do my own research than read this collection.
