Written in a clear, consistent style, the Fourth Edition of this bestselling textbook eloquently describes, and at times serves as a conduit for a broad spectrum of experiences related to race, ethnicity, gender and class. Featuring in-depth analyses of diversity within groups, as well as the multiple interactions between them, Joseph F Healey addresses the experiences of women, and many other minority groups, throughout the text.

New material is provided that analyzes the recent immigration trends in the United States, and well as new student-friendly features have been added such as: 'current debates' at the end of each chapter that consider the ideas of and works of prominent figures in the area; and 'narrative portraits' - first-person accounts that allow the student to study the human side of theory.
