A companion website is available for this text

Joseph F. Healey's Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, Sixth Edition builds upon the bestselling status of the prior editions, praised for the author's writing style and the various effective pedagogical features that ensure students engage with core concepts in a meaningful way.

With many updates and revisions, this edition once again uses sociological theory to tell the story of race and other socially constructed inequalities in the United States with consistency and clarity. Chapter-ending current debates based on the writings of prominent scholars spark classroom discussion on important issues, and first-person accounts, 'Narrative Portraits', are threaded throughout the text to bring life to a variety of topics.

This is a well written book that engages students in thinking about issues of race, ethnicity, gender and class, with the use of narratives. A must read for students!

A great, very student-friendly book. It has a great deal of historical background on immigration, which might be a bit lengthy for some and fascinating for others. Lots of ineteresting stories, real life examples and great suggestions of projects for students, which engage them in their local community. A good read not only for sociology, but for all social sciences students and researchers. Recommendable also for courses in psychology dealing
with the topics of immigration in the US. A less US-centered version would be good too!
