Summary

Derived from the Fifth Edition of Joseph F. Healey#xE2;#xAC;"s bestselling text Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, the Third Edition of Diversity & Society: Race, Ethnicity, and Gender, 2011 Update provides an accessible sociological analysis of U.S. minority groups. Updated throughout, this abbreviated edition retains the conceptual frameworks and organizational format of the larger version, and is the only brief text to present a unitary sociological frame of reference for the analysis of minority-dominant relations.
