About Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class: The Sociology of Group Conflict and Change, Ninth Edition

Our bestselling text for courses called Race and Ethnic Relations, Majority-Minority Relations, and Social Diversity, Joseph F. Healey and Andi Stepnick’s Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class: The Sociology of Group Conflict and Change, Ninth Edition, tells the story of America’s minority groups, today and throughout history. By presenting information, asking questions, and examining controversies, it demonstrates that understanding what it means to be an American has always required us to grapple with issues of diversity and difference.

The book is known for its clear and engaging writing style; for the use of sociological theory to discuss socially constructed inequalities in the United States; and for its thorough coverage of historical and contemporary immigration to the U.S. Individual chapters focus on one group at a time: white ethnics, five major racial and ethnic minorities, and minorities based on gender and sexual identity. The text also explores the varieties of experience within groups, especially the intersection of race/ethnicity and gender.
