Helps Students Relate Concepts of Diversity to their own Lives

Understanding Diversity, 1/e by Claire M. Renzetti and Raquel M. Kennedy-Bergen is composed of original contributions written by both well-known sociologists as well as newer voices whose cutting edge work is likely to significantly impact the field. Readers will find it easy to relate to this title, as every topic has been chosen based on its relevancy to college students. Students will emerge with an understanding of how the intersecting inequalities of race, gender, social class, sexuality, age, immigration status, and geographic location influence how various problems are socially and politically framed, and how they are differentially experienced.  

MySearchLab is an integral part of the Renzetti / Kennedy-Bergen learning program. Engaging activities and assessments provide a teaching a learning system that helps students see the world through a sociological lens. With MySocLab, students can develop critical thinking skills through writing, explore real-world data through the new Social Explorer, and watch the latest entries in the Core Concept Video Series.

This title is available in a variety of formats – digital and print. Pearson offers its titles on the devices students love through Pearson's MyLab products, CourseSmart, Amazon, and more. To learn more about pricing options and customization, click the Choices tab.
