Great read!

This is a great book and a must read. Americans pretend that racism is a thing of the past, but it is not. Class is still something that not many people like to discuss (namely the upper class), and women still trail behind men (for the most part) when it comes to wages/salary. It is definitely an eye-opener, to say the least. I also recommend watching a video on PBS called, A Class Divided; it is an experiment performed by Jane Elliott.

It changed my life

I read the previous edition of this book in Spring of 2004 for one of my Enlgish courses in college and it literally changed my life in many shapes and forms. My intellectual knowledge has expanded tremendously on the issues of gender, racism, racial prejudice, ethnic cultures, sexism, and classism thanks to this great scholar book. On my 22nd birthday I was given this new edition and I am glad a new edition was released with more updates and information. I recommend this book to any person interested in those issues and concepts that shape our everyday life and our sociological evolution as humans. I am a university student of history and I have found this book to be a valuable tool for research papers and self-education. I strongly recommend this book. If you are willing to read on the social issues that are absolutely necessary to understand our political, social and economic system, please read this book.


Good price and fast shipping. Although class required it, I never opened it. Shipped in great condition though. I plan to pass it down to a freshman.

Looking inwards...

The "RCG" text edited by Rothenberg is truly a gem. It offers a myriad of perspectives from all Americans not just those with doctorate degrees or trapped in their ivory towers. I have used the text for my courses and have not had one student indicate that it was a nothing book or that they did not learn something of value from the book. Moreover, when the book is updated, the publisher and editor put an effort into demonstrating the changing landscape that is race, class, and gender bias in the "United States of America."

Rothenberg and Zinn

A colleague of mine introduced me to this book in 1991 while we were teaching courses in women's issues and human diversity. I have since used this book -- every single edition -- as a required text in human diversity at three major universities. Currently I am teaching in a graduate social work program in a rural setting at a small state university and will be using this text again for the third consecutive year. The students have consistently rated this book highly because of the interesting articles that Ms. Rothenberg has included. They actually enjoy reading the book. The articles are informative, provocative and timeless and give the students an excellent historical context and lens through which they can analyze and understand some of the most burning and divisive contemporary issues. I am reminded of Howard Zinn. I hope Ms. Rothenberg continues to publish this rich material. She tells the true story!
