Format: Paperback
"Reading for Diversity and Social Justice" offers a comprehensive collection of readings that explore many of the predominant social issues present in today's society. The editors present their collection by separating the readings into themes (such as Feminism, Heterosexism, Racism, etc.). Each theme is opened with a discussion led by one of the editors framing the major facets of theme.

The readings selected provide a well-rounded and in-depth view of the concepts presented. The editors further organize each category allowing the readings to present historical perspectives, theoretical frameworks, and individual voices. I found this book to lend itself well to classroom discussion. In addition the editors provide a selection of readings that allow a student (or interested individual) to immerse themselves in diversity and social justice issues.

I would highly recommend this book because of the variety that it offers. The only aspect that I was displeased with was the separation of each article's citation information from the article itself (which makes referencing the articles somewhat clumsy).

This book has given me insights into myself that I have never even considered. It has explained so much that was invisible about others, myself, my family, my friends, associates, school mates and my relationships to them. This book is better than getting an astrologer or doing the MMPI. Very enlightening. Light bulbs going turning on every where!

This book has many, many different stories and articles on diversity that cover almost every cultural group that is in the United States right now. It is well written and edited and I would highly recommend it to anyone studying diversity in psychology or sociology fields. Be careful though if you are being taught from an older edition. This one is the 2010 edition, right up to date and has new articles in it but some articles from older editions are not included. It's a great book and you needn't be a seasoned reader with tons of psycho-jargon in order to understand a single article. I can't recommend it enough.

Ok, so I wouldn't have bought this book if it had not been required for a class. That doesn't mean it wasn't incredibly helpful! The professor only required about half the book be read and I'm holding onto it after the class so I had finish the parts we skipped. An interesting read with many article options.

This is a text book for a (master's degree level) class I'm taking on problems that face human service providers. The readings are eye-opening! As I read, I am confronted by my own hidden 'prejudices'; ideas about groups or individuals that I didn't know I had. I challenge anyone who believes they have no biases to read this book; it will bring many of your own biases and beliefs to the surface for you to grapple with. This should be required reading in every American high school where it would really impact young people's thinking and perhaps change the face of discrimination.

I am reading this book for my Social Justice class, at my Master in
Social Work program.
The book is very pleasant to read, I like the short chapters and a variety of authors keep the reading interesting.
As I said, I am discovering a whole new world of information about social problems that I was not aware of in America.
It gives a new prospective on how social workers can support their clients and the community in facing issues of oppression.

The shipping was fast. The book was exactly as described. The soft cover made the book or manageable during reading than a traditional hardcover book.
