How do race, class and gender interrelate? How does the interlocking of race, class and gender form patterns of social relations and develop into hierarchical orders? What are the dilemmas and contradictions created by the simultaneity of race, class and gender? How can feminist scholarship based on the complex understanding of the interlocking nature of race, class and gender transform our knowledge and social life? This anthology - derived from a special issue of the journal Gender & Society - seeks to bring a clearer understanding to these issues. The editors take the studies of race, class and gender beyond their usual context - that of social stratification - locating them in the wider sociological world. The broad scope and interdisciplinary nature of the volume will make it an invaluable contribution to the study of social organizations.
