What is included with this book?


At a time when issues of identity, diversity, and inequality are at their most complex and divisive—and very much on student’s minds—Rothenberg’s anthology is as of-the-moment, authoritative, and thought-provoking as ever. Now in a rigorously updated new edition, this longtime bestseller is again the ideal catalyst for sparking lively class discussions on variety of difficult subjects, helping students think critically about categories of race, class, gender and sexuality, and how they operate and interact in the U.S. today.

The new edition features 46 new readings (see table of contents), including writings from the founders and leaders of key contemporary social movements (Tarana Burke on the metoo movement; Alicia Garza on Black Lives Matter; Chief Arvol Looking Horse on Standing Rock; and Gaby Pacheco on the Dreamers) and new foundational pieces of intersectional analysis from Kimberlé Crenshaw, Dorothy Allison, and Cherríe Moraga. This edition also features new pedagogy designed specifically to help students make connections across topics, identify key ideas, and understand the context of each selection.
