Routledge International Handbook of Race, Class, and Gender

by Shirley A. (Southern Connecticut State University, USA) Jackson

Part of the Routledge International Handbooks Series

Routledge International Handbook of Race, Class, and Gender Synopsis

The Routledge International Handbook of Race, Class, and Gender chronicles the development, growth, history, impact, and future direction of race, gender, and class studies from a multidisciplinary perspective. The research in this subfield has been wide-ranging, including works in sociology, gender studies, anthropology, political science, social policy, history, and public health. As a result, the interdisciplinary nature of race, gender, and class and its ability to reach a large audience has been part of its appeal. The Handbook provides clear and informative essays by experts from a variety of disciplines, addressing the diverse and broad-based impact of race, gender, and class studies. The Handbook is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students who are looking for a basic history, overview of key themes, and future directions for the study of the intersection of race, class, and gender. Scholars new to the area will also find the Handbook's approach useful. The areas covered and the accompanying references will provide readers with extensive opportunities to engage in future research in the area.

Routledge International Handbook of Race, Class, and Gender Press Reviews

Kimmel and Leek provide a thought-provoking framework for the subsequent chapters, which examine a variety of disciplinary, geographical, and sociopolitical topics. The result is an interdisciplinary volume that illustrates the importance of including race, class, and gender analyses in research in any field. The handbook's interdisciplinarity and accessibility will make it a valuable addition to most academic libraries, and the information and analyses it shares can be applied to a variety of settings, including equity and diversity work in higher education.
