Diversity and Society: Race, Ethnicity, and Gender. Leaving the subject matter aside I have noticed a few issues with this textbook that I have issues with. The main text itself is somewhat dry as most textbooks tend to be but there are some more interesting perspective articles that were not written by the author. There are several small things that I think could be done better but I would like to focus on two issues that I think are particularly bad. It seems that the author of this.

Derived from the Fourth Edition of Joseph Healey’s best-selling text Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, the Second Edition of Diversity & Society: Race, Ethnicity, and Gender provides an accessible, jargon-free, sociological analysis of U.S. minority groups. Updated throughout, this abbreviated edition retains the conceptual frameworks and organizational format of the larger version, and is the only brief text to present a unitary sociological frame of reference for the analysis of minority-dominant relations.

I will admit that I was a little nervous about ordering a book from this buyer because they had a brand new account, but it turned out great. It was shipped within 24 hours of my payment and I received it less than a week after buying it. The book is in excellent condition for being used. I would definitely order from this buyer again.
I ordered this book for a college course, but I feel it would be useful and thought-provoking even outside of an academic setting. This is one textbook that is well worth reading from cover to cover. Healey writes in such a way that is both easy to read and comprehend, yet full of a wealth of information. This book has sparked my interest in Sociology, and even though I'm a Psychology major, I will definitely be taking more Sociology courses! I am glad I chose to purchase instead of rent this book, because it may prove to be a useful reference in future college classes.
Even though the chapters are pretty long, they are easy to go through and understand. I got the book for my Race, Ethnicity and Diversity class, and my professor makes a pretty good job at discussing each chapter in class. At the beginning of each chapter there are real life stories to introduce the subject and it is a great way to catch the readers attention from the beginning.
Great book to keep in my library as it helps to understand social behaviors!
Good book.
I received the book I'm about a week which was great. It was in perfect condition and I'm glad I ordered it online. I know it will be a big help for my college course that I'm taking.
its really dumb how there are no page numbers for this book. Especially since i got it for school use and now i cant follow along.
Book was in great condition just like it said on the description.
