Description - Gender, Race and Class by Lynn Chancer

Gender, Race, and Class is a critical overview of these three well-known dimensions of the social world. The study of these as a combined topic has evolved over the years, and this concise, accessible volume shows why the subject continues to resonate both in and outside the academy. Drawing on both scholarly and popular cultural examples to illustrate the workings of gender, race, and class, the book synthesizes the wealth of research on each of the topics, while also presenting a set of intellectually and politically compelling reasons for analyzing them together. The book offers a conceptual "vocabulary" and discusses why and how commonalities and differences exist in studies of gender, race, and class. The authors engage with the subject through their classroom teaching experience, and probe why and how discriminatory biases operate. Students and scholars will find this an ideal text for understanding and utilizing the basic concepts and theories underlying contemporary studies of social inequalities.
