Description - Language and Prejudice by Tamara M. Valentine

Part of the "Longman Topics" reader series, The Language of Prejudice examines the effects language has on societal biases. This brief collection of readings focuses on the way language influences and prejudices society's view on race, gender, age, disabilities, and sexual preferences. Thought-provoking selections ask students to think about timely and relevant issues such as: racial slurs and other offensive language, anti-feminist discourse, and verbal assaults on homosexuals. Divided into seven chapters, each features six or more essays of varying lengths. Brief apparatus helps students write more thoughtfully in response to the selections and to think more critically about the importance of choosing language wisely. "Longman Topics" are brief, attractive readers on a single complex, but compelling, topic. Featuring about 30 full-length selections, these volumes are generally half the size and half the cost of standard composition readers.
