We don't experience our everyday lives through just one lens; rather, we experience all elements of our identityrace, class, gender, sexualitysimultaneously. Identities and Inequalitiesacknowledges this complex reality and brings to light the importance of studying the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality. It also examines these intersections as both elements of personal identity and sources of social inequality. Newman has written a unique, engaging, and highly accessible book that will prepare students to study these all-important issues in a whole new way.
