Summary
"Privilege is about more than being white, wealthy, and male-as Michael Kimmel, Abby Ferber, and a range of contributors make clear in this timely anthology. In an era when "diversity" is too often shorthand for "of color" and/or "female, " the personal and analytical essays in this collection explore the multifaceted nature of social location and consider how gender, class, race, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, and religion interact to create nuanced layers of privilege and oppression. The individual essays-taken together-guide students to a deep understanding of the dynamics of diversity and stratification, advantage, and power. The fourth edition features thirteen new essays that help students understand the intersectional nature of privilege and oppression and has new introductory essays to contextualize the readings. These enhancements, plus the updated pedagogical features of discussion questions and activities at the end of each section, encourage students to examine their own beliefs, practices, and social location"--, Provided by publisher"Privilege is about more than being white, wealthy, and male--as Michael Kimmel, Abby Ferber, and a wide range of contributors make clear in this fourth edition of their innovative and timely anthology.

The individual essays are powerfully though provoking; taken together, they help guide students to a deep understanding of the dynamics of diversity and stratification, advantage, and power. The fourth edition features twelve new or newly recast essays that will help students understand the intersectional nature of privilege and oppression. Kimmel and Ferber have also added new introductory essays to contextualize the readings in each section. These enhancements, plus the enhanced pedagogical features of discussion questions and activities at the end of each section, encourage students to examine their own assumptions, beliefs, values, practices, and social location"--, Provided by publisher
