Ferguson: Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Social Class, 2e An eye-opening exploration of how socials statuses intersect to shape our identities and produce inequalities. In this fully edited and streamlined Second Edition, Susan Ferguson has carefully selected readings that open readers' eyes to the ways that social statuses shape our experiences and impact our life chances. The anthology represents many of the leading voices in the field and reflects the many approaches used by scholars and researchers to understand this important and evolving subject. The anthology is organized around broad topics (Identity, Power and Privilege, Social Institutions, etc.), rather than categories of difference (Race, Gender, Class, Sexuality) to underscore this fundamental insight: race, class, gender, and sexuality do not exist in isolation; they often intersect with one another to produce social inequalities and form the bases of our identities in society. Healey: Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, 7e Joseph F. Healey and Eileen O'Brien's Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, Seventh Edition once again uses sociological perspectives to tell the story of race and other socially constructed inequalities with consistency and clarity. Through a vivid writing style and engaging pedagogical features, the authors ensure that readers engage with core concepts in a meaningful way. The text conveys much of the richness and varieties of experience within minority groups, instead of treating them as single, undifferentiated entities. Although it focuses mainly on the minority groups in the United States, it compares group relations in the United States with other societies as well.

American Multicultural Studies: Diversity of Race, Ethnicity, Gender and Sexuality provides an interdisciplinary view of multicultural studies in the United States, addressing a wide range of topics that continue to define and shape this area of study. Through this collection of essays Sherrow Pinder responds to the need to open up a rich avenue for addressing current and continuing issues of race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, cultural diversity, and education in their varied forms. Substantial thematic overlaps are found between sections and essays, all of which are oriented toward a single broad objective: to develop new and different ways of addressing how multicultural issues, in their discursive sociocultural contexts, are inextricably linked to the operations of power. Power, as a site of resistance to which it invariably gives rise, is tacked from a perspective that attends to the complexities of America’s history and politics.

As America's ethnic and racial character undergoes explosive transformation, its crime fictions trace, contest and celebrate the changes. The Contemporary American Crime Novel is an exciting book that offers a comprehensive overview of recent developments in American crime fiction, exploringAmerica's dynamic, fragmented multicultural landscape and how this changing landscape has, in the process, transformed the codes and conventions of the crime novel. Mapping the genre's ideological complexities and unreconcilable tensions, its preference for uncovering, contesting and yet also reinforcing traditional relations of domination and subordination, and its vision of a morally-impaired, conflict-riven society on the verge of disintegration, TheContemporary American Crime Novel considers the emergence of African-American, female, gay, lesbian, Latino- and Asian-American crime writers alongside contemporary developments in white, male hard-boiled crime fiction. While race and ethnicity are the main focus on the book, class, gender,sexuality and region are taken into account as "complicating factors" in the construction of identity. Authors featured include James Ellroy, James Lee Burke, Sara Paretsky, Barbara Wilson, Chester Himes, Walter Mosley, Faye Kellerman, Alex Abella and Chang-Rae Lee. Steering an informed course between the dogmas of left-wing political correctness and right-wing jingoism, the book is an engaging andaccessible attempt to rescue the American crime novel from its celebrants and detractors and provide a new reading that explores the genre's growing popularity and foregrounds its ambiguities and complexities. The book will provide a lively and provocative introduction to key debates on the study ofthe genre, the question of multiculturalism and the theorising of race and ethnicity in the United States.

`Settler societies' are those in which Europeans have settled and become politically dominant over indigenous people, and where a heterogenous society has developed in class, ethnic and racial terms. They offer a unique prism for understanding the complex relations of gender, race, ethnicity and class in contemporary societies. Unsettling Settler Societies brings together a distinguished cast of contributors to explore these relations in both material and discursive terms. They look at the relation between indigenous and settler//immigrant populations, focusing in particular on women's conditions and politics. The book examines how the process of development of settler societies, and the positions of indigenous and

Racial, Ethnic, Gender and Class Representations in Margaret Laurence’s Writings is a study on Canada, Canadian literature and Margaret Laurence’s works in particular, thus addressing various kinds of readership. This book avoids the danger of limiting the approach to solely focusing attention on Canada by presenting a thorough analysis of various literary genres, allowing the book to be of interest to all literature lovers. Furthermore, the book explores the parallelism between life and fiction, emphasising Laurence’s biographic and realist elements and their influence on the writer’s fictional writing, revealing real and imaginary worlds which would appeal to anybody’s literary needs. This major contribution to the already existent criticism of Margaret Laurence’s works lies in the analysis of her work as an entity, balancing both terms of the common binary oppositions: fiction versus non-fiction, Africa versus Canada, white versus Black or Metis. In spite of critical comments which might be raised, Andreea Topor-Constantin comments on how the voice of the marginal makes itself heard throughout the author’s books, underlying Laurence’s emphasis on characterisation and her genuine concern for people. This book covers all aspects of Laurence’s life and fiction: from the African to the writer’s Canadian background, from adults’ to children’s literature, from novels to short stories, from essays to letters, in order to challenge readers’ perceptions of race, ethnicity, gender and class.
