BOOK EXCERPT:

Featuring an accessible and diverse collection of more than 60 writings by a variety of scholars, RACE, CLASS, & GENDER demonstrates how the complex intersection of people's race, class, and gender (and also sexuality) shapes their experiences, and who they become as individuals. Each reading addresses a timely--and often controversial--topic, such as the sub-prime mortgage crisis, health care inequality, undocumented students, and social media, thus giving readers a multidimensional perspective on a number of social issues. To provide an analytical framework for the articles, co-editors Andersen and Hill Collins begin each section with an in-depth introduction.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Using arresting case studies of how ordinary people understand the concepts of race, class, and gender, Celine-Marie Pascale shows that the peculiarity of commonsense is that it imposes obviousness—that which we cannot fail to recognize. As a result, how we negotiate the challenges of inequality in the twenty-first century may depend less on what people consciously think about "difference" and more on what we inadvertently assume. Through an analysis of commonsense knowledge, Pascale expertly provides new insights into familiar topics. In addition, by analyzing local practices in the context of established cultural discourses, Pascale shows how the weight of history bears on the present moment, both enabling and constraining possibilities. Pascale tests the boundaries of sociological knowledge and offers new avenues for conceptualizing social change. In 2008, Making Sense of Race, Class and Gender was the recipient of the Distinguished Contribution to Scholarship Book Award, of the American Sociological Association Section on Race, Gender, and Class, for "distinguished and significant contribution to the development of the integrative field of race, gender, and class."

BOOK EXCERPT:

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 br
