Editorial Reviews

"The sociological problem of the 21st century will be the problem of intersectionality. The Segal-Martinez gender, race, and class anthology is an outstanding contribution to address this pressing problem written with undergraduate students in mind. The breadth and depth of offerings in thisbook is impressive, and I appreciated the inclusion of selections dealing with global matters."--Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Duke University
