This anthology focuses on race, class, and gender from a sociological perspective. The readings examine these topics as interlocking categories of experience, looking at the way that they shape the experience of persons in different social institutions. To help students see the connections between personal experience and social institutions, the authors use a variety of contemporary sociological materials, coupled with personal narratives from various writers, to discuss the impact of race, class, and gender in their experience.
