Diversity and Society
Race, Ethnicity, and Gender

Seventh Edition


November 2022 | 640 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Adapted from the best-selling Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class by Joseph F. Healey and Andi Stepnick, the Seventh Edition of Diversity and Society provides a brief overview of inter-group relations in the U.S. In 10 chapters, it explains concepts and theories about dominant-minority relations; examines historical and contemporary immigration to the U.S.; and narrates the experiences of the largest racial and ethnic minorities. The text explores the variety of experiences within groups, paying particular attention to the intersection of gender with race and ethnicity. While the focus is on minority groups in the U.S., it also includes comparative, cross-national coverage of group relations in other societies. 

The authors show how minorities are inseparable from the larger American experience, and the text concludes with a chapter on the future of inter-group relations based on current trends and patterns.
