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. Each thematic section is broken down into three divisions: Contexts; Personal Voices; and Next Steps and Action. The selections include over 90 essays from some of the foremost names in the field-bell hooks, Cornel West, Michael Omi, Iris Marion Young, Gloria Anzaldúa, Michelle Fine, Gloria Steinem, Richard Rodriguez, Beverly Daniel Tatum, Michael Kimmel, Patricia Hill Collins and many other distinguished scholars.
