The first reader to cover the scope of oppressions in America, Readings for Diversity and Social Justice covers six thematic issues: racism, sexism, Anti-Semitism, heterosexism, classism, and ableism. The reader contains a mix of short personal and theoretical essays as well as entries designed to challenge students to take action to end oppressive behavior and to affirm diversity and racial justice.

This book is rather mind-blowing. It deconstructs dominant-narratives and narrow-minded thinking, and although dense, it will help anyone re-evaluate how we walk in this world, the things we see, and especially the rhetoric's we perpetuate. This book is so necessary for college students to read and to think critically about ourselves and our world. The stories told in our history books are limited and these readings will offer the very many voices that deserve to be heard. It is important to address how oppression operates in our world and it is even harder to see how each one of us can be oppressors. It takes a willing mind and open heart to accept how our voices can hinder our own education of the world.
Terrible text for college. I am a student in college and this is a required book for one of my classes and is a complete waste of money. All it does it trash white people, males, and anything that could be seen as privileged in any way. Absolute garbage.
