3.0 out of 5 stars I purchased this book for a weekly class, July 6, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Struggle for Equality: Women and Monorities in America (American Saga) (Library Binding)
I purchased this book for a weekly class. The content is decent, but not outstanding.

On the plus side, there were two chapters on women: one on the suffragist movement and one on the proposed equal rights amendment. There were also separate chapters on abolition and the civil rights movement.

On the negative side, the children noticed right away that Asians and people with disabilities were lumped into one chapter "like neither was important enough for their own chapter". The chapter on Latinos seemed dated and made no mention of the current, on-going anti-immigrant hysteria, the ICE raids, or the prisons for men, women and children. These shortcomings were definitely noted in a class where two of the eight children were Asian and one was Latina.

Most annoying though, the copy I received was misbound. The pages were incredibly out of order. So, I could not use it until I copied it and reordered the pages correctly.
