Excellent complement for WGS Majors. An aggregation of many different views and experiences of women who have a sociological imagination, a must if one is to take on the status quo.

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.

This book is very interesting...in 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.

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 :)

I needed this book for a course in my MSW program, but found it to be very enlightening, and a great reference source in practice.

I'm not a huge fan of the format. It's a compilation of a whole bunch of different articles. Many are interesting, but some just whine on and on. I thought they could have done a better job for the title, but I guess it did encompass all aspects. It was well written, but just an ok book.

I'm amazingly happy with this product. With the insanely high prices of textbooks on college campuses it is nice to be able to save money and also get the textbooks quickly. I'm completely satisfied with this seller.
