Joseph F. Healey and Eileen O’Brien’s Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, Seventh Edition once again uses sociological perspectives to tell the story of race and other socially constructed inequalities with consistency and clarity. Through a vivid writing style and engaging pedagogical features, the authors ensure that readers engage with core concepts in a meaningful way. The text conveys much of the richness and varieties of experience within minority groups, instead of treating them as single, undifferentiated entities. Although it focuses mainly on the minority groups in the United States, it compares group relations in the United States with other societies as well.


We gratefully acknowledge Joseph F. Healey and Eileen O’Brien for writing an excellent text. Special thanks are also due to Robert Greene of Marquette University, Chris Keegan of SUNY-Oneonta, and Marta Henriksen of Central New Mexico Community College for developing the ancillaries on this site.
