Healey's Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class: Updated Edition builds upon the bestselling status of the four 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 edition includes an introductory chapter discussing the impact of the Obama election plus three topical articles from CQ Researcher on The Obama Presidency, Women's Rights, and American Indians.
