Melting Pots and Rainbow Nations by Jacklyn Cock
Book Description"This passionate, intelligent commentary is an invigorating look at the implications of difference and diversity in two contrasting but similar societies: the United States and South Africa. "Melting Pots and Rainbow Nations" addresses how differences--of gender, race, culture, biology, and sexual orientation - are variously understood and acted on in both countries. The authors argue that the concepts of difference and diversity, although valuable, are hollow if disconnected from specific social and historical contexts in which power relations create and perpetuate disadvantage. Their thoughtful exploration includes accounts of their own experiences of difference and their perspectives on such pioneering women as Elizabeth Bishop, Frene Ginwala, Audre Lord, Ruth First, Jane Goodall, and Mamphela Ramphele."
