Witness the ways in which important events were reflected in the everyday lives of ordinary people with The Social Fabric, Eleventh Edition. This compelling anthology of readings is comprised of a variety of essays that highlight the diversity of American experiences-based on differences in race, ethnicity, social status, and gender-and the ways in which this diversity has, at times, led to conflict.
