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 gender, race and class 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. This book examines recent scholarship to how one's gender, with the added dimension of race and class, can impact one's experiences in society; probes deeper under the surface of different biases to see whether common elements of discrimination may also be at work; and, includes a conceptual 'vocabulary' that describes how gender, race and class interrelate.
