Oppression, Privilege, and Resistance: Theoretical Perspectives on Racism, Sexism, and Heterosexism
Lisa Maree Heldke, Peg O'Connor
McGraw-Hill, 2004 - Philosophy - 791 pages
This anthology is based on a distinct theoretical framework that provides coherence and cohesion to the readings included, presenting the phenomena of racism, sexism, heterosexism, and classism as interlocking systems of oppression. Resting upon this oppression model are two sets of theories, one concerned with the phenomenon of privilege--the companion of oppression--and the other with resistance--the response to oppression.
The significant number of readings addressing the different forms that resistance takes are perhaps the most important part of the book for students struggling with the questions "What is being done?" and "What can I do?"

Review: Oppression, Privilege, and Resistance: Theoretical Perspectives on Racism, Sexism, and HeterosexismUser Review - Jill Nelson - Goodreads
Awesome textbook, my favorite Sociology professor had us get it at Saint' Mary's. It's out of print, but if you find it on Ebay, buy it! It has a whole range of excerpts and articles from progressive activists. Covers a bunch of "isms" and is perfect for group discussion. Read full review
