Drawing from a wide selection of classic and contemporary works, the 58 selections represent a plurality of voices and views within sociology. Students will be introduced to cutting edge scholarship and perspectives through classical readings from great thinkers like C. Wright Mills, Karl Marx, Howard Becker, and Max Weber and contemporary articles on current issues like gender socialization, healthcare reform, and minorities in the power elite. By integrating issues of diversity throughout the book, Ferguson helps students see the interrelationships between race-ethnicity, social class, and gender, as well as how these relationships have shaped the experiences of all people in society. Each selection is preceded by a brief introduction that highlights the key sociological concepts for students consider as they read.

An eye-opening exploration of how socials statuses intersect to shape our identities and produce inequalities. In this fully edited and streamlined Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Social Class: Dimensions of Inequality and Identity, Second Edition, Susan Ferguson has carefully selected readings that open readers’ eyes to the ways that social statuses shape our experiences and impact our life chances. The anthology represents many of the leading voices in the field and reflects the many approaches used by scholars and researchers to understand this important and evolving subject. The anthology is organized around broad topics (Identity, Power and Privilege, Social Institutions, etc.), rather than categories of difference (Race, Gender, Class, Sexuality) to underscore this fundamental insight: race, class, gender, and sexuality do not exist in isolation; they often intersect with one another to produce social inequalities and form the bases of our identities in society. Nine readings are new to this edition: Michael Polgar—on Jewish assimilation and culture in the U.S. Katherine Franke—on the 1940 Supreme Court case, Suneri v. Cassagne, concerning racial identity Carla Pfeffer—on transgender identity Michelle Alexander—on the New Jim Crow Richard Lachmann—on the decline of the U.S. as an economic and political power Abby Ferber—on privilege and “oppression blindness” Amada Hess—Why Women Aren’t Welcome on the Internet Iris Marion Young—Five Faces of Oppression Ellis Cose—Rage of the Privileged “The choice of readings in Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Social Class: Dimensions of Inequality and Identity is better than my current text in terms of inequality and steps of closing the gaps.” – Dr. Deden Rukmana, Savannah State University “I really like how Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Social Class: Dimensions of Inequality and Identity deals with underlying concepts rather than difference by x, y, or z.” – Ana Villalobos, Brandeis University

Despite their role in founding and defining the discipline of sociology, the field's classical theorists typically receive only cursory attention in standard introductory texts. Written specifically for undergraduate students, this supplemental text, Fred Pampel's Sociological Lives and Ideas brings to life the fundamental ideas of Karl Marx, Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, Georg Simmel, George H. Mead, and W.E.B. DuBois by placing them in the context of each theorists' biography. By exploring the lives and times of these key figures, students will gain a richer understanding of their intellectual legacies, as well as of the ways in which their work can be applied to current issues.
