The only text that uses a conceptual framework to analyze the interlocking nature of race, class, gender, and sexuality.Understanding Race, Class, Gender and Sexuality provides a formal delineation of the theories underlying intersectional research and a framework for conducting critical analyses of the ways in which race, class, gender, and sexuality intersect in our lives. This is the only text in the field thatpresents a conceptual framework for analyzing the interlocking nature of these hierarchical systems and the ways in which they operate in our lives on both macro and micro levels. Originally published as two separate books, the second edition is now one book including both text and cases. Theoriginal structure has stayed the same, and Weber continues to use the extended example of education to show students how to conduct a race, class, gender, and sexuality analysis.

Editorial Reviews

"I currently use Understanding Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality in my Introduction to Women's Studies course, and I have used it in my Feminist Theory, Introduction to American Studies, and Contemporary American Culture classes. In each of these courses, the objective is for students tobegin analyzing race, class, gender, and sexuality in popular culture, American Literature, and American Institutions.... Lynn Weber's new edition would be the perfect book for my courses. Her plan to integrate the cases into the book is absolutely wonderful. This is a 'must use' text, especiallyfor interdisciplinary courses. I will adopt! By including the cases, I am thoroughly happy! This is a move that I have wanted for years." --Laurie Kendall, University of Maryland (English and Women's Studies)
