Description:

Diversity and Society: Race, Ethnicity, and Gender is derived from the Third Edition of Joseph Healeys best-selling text Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class. This brief edition retains the conceptual frameworks and organizational format of the larger version and highlights a few powerful theories and concepts rather than trying to cover all possible sociological paradigms.   Diversity and Society uses sociological theory to present and analyze the experiences of American minority groups as well as group relations around the globe. The book uses a macro-sociological, historical, comparative approach and de-emphasizes social-psychological concepts such as prejudice. Written in an accessible format, this relatively brief book will engage students and broaden their understanding of the past and present forces that have created and sustained the racial and ethnic groups that compose American society.   Features and Benefits: Each chapter includes opening photos that set the stage for the chapter contents. Chapter 5 contains new research on social networks and jobs. "Focus On" boxes within the chapters offer enhanced coverage of gender and comparative issues. Review questions and Web-based research exercises at the end of each chapter encourage students to think critically about key issues. A new companion reader, Race, Ethnicity, and Gender: Selected Readings with Narrative Portraits, Current Debates and additional readings is also available and can be used alone or in conjunction with Diversity and Society. An online Student Study Site is available for students to test their knowledge with interactive quizzes. An Instructors Manual on CD-ROM provides instructors with examination questions, additional background material on discussion questions in the text, and other helpful aids.   Diversity and Society is an excellent text for undergraduate courses on ethnic, gender, minority relations and related topics. Diversity and Society and its accompanying reader Race, Ethnicity, and Gender: Selected Readings are now available at a 15% package discount!
