about

Creating and Contesting Social Inequalities: Contemporary Readings offers readings on a variety of topics, with a focus on the "how" of inequality. Rather than structuring the book topically, editors Carissa M. Froyum, Katrina Bloch, and Tiffany Taylor have organized the readings around socialprocesses that reproduce and maintain inequality.This unique anthology includes social change readings throughout its entirety, rather than segmenting them at the end of the reader. It also features innovative data analysis exercises, reading questions, and social change projects. With its combination of generic processes, intersectionality, fullincorporation of disabilities, global perspective, and data analysis exercises, Creating and Contesting Social Inequalities will challenge students to see themselves as agents in a system of inequality rather than passive learners.

"Creating and Contesting Social Inequalities features rigorous, timely, and wide-ranging readings that will engage students in topics of immediate interest and also get them thinking outside their own contexts." --Stephanie McClure, Georgia College and State University
