This best-selling anthology examines the interrelationship of race, class, and gender and explores how they have shaped the experiences of all people in the U.S. Drawing from an interdisciplinary array of contemporary and historical readings, coupled with personal narratives from various writers, the authors help students see the connections between personal experience and social institutions. The introductions to each of the sections provide continuity by identifying central issues and help students place the articles in context.
