|“Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge shed new light on intersectionality by showing how people across the globe use it as an analytical and organizing tool for protesting against social injustices and solving social problems. Their clear explanations and real-world examples covering a wide range of issues make intersectionality highly accessible and practicable to scholars, students, and activists alike. This book will be essential reading for understanding how power operates and is contested in our neoliberal age.”|

|Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge provide a much-needed, introduction to the field of intersectional knowledge and praxis. They analyze the emergence, growth and contours of the concept and show how intersectional frameworks speak to topics as diverse as human rights, neoliberalism, identity politics, immigration, hip hop, global social protest, diversity, digital media, Black feminism in Brazil, violence and World Cup soccer. Accessibly written and drawing on a plethora of lively examples to illustrate its arguments, the book highlights intersectionality’s potential for understanding inequality and bringing about social justice oriented change.|

Timely, relevant and extremely student-friendly, Andersen/Hill Collins’ RACE, CLASS, AND GENDER: INTERSECTIONS AND INEQUALITIES, 10th edition, equips you with a multidimensional perspective on today’s social issues. Written by two leading authorities in the field, this classic anthology uses a diverse collection of writings by a variety of scholars to demonstrate how the complex intersection of people’s race, class, gender and sexuality shapes their experiences in U.S. society. Professors Andersen and Hill Collins begin each section with in-depth introductions to provide an analytical framework for understanding social inequality. Completely up-to-date, the readings cover current–and often controversial topics–including undocumented students, myths about immigrant crime, growing inequality, the role of social media in social movement mobilization, health care inequality and more.
