An excellent and comprehensive reader on diversity and social justice issues
on October 7, 2010
"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).
