Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class: Interactive eBook
The Sociology of Group Conflict and Change 6e Media Edition



April 2013 | 1 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
A companion website is available for this text

Joseph F. Healey's Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, Sixth Edition builds upon the bestselling status of the prior editions, praised for the author's writing style and the various effective pedagogical features that ensure students engage with core concepts in a meaningful way.

With many updates and revisions, this edition once again uses sociological theory to tell the story of race and other socially constructed inequalities in the United States with consistency and clarity. Chapter-ending current debates based on the writings of prominent scholars spark classroom discussion on important issues, and first-person accounts, 'Narrative Portraits', are threaded throughout the text to bring life to a variety of topics.
