Pressestimmen

Praise for the First Edition "The diverse voices found in this book would add a unique and thought-provoking perspective to any undergraduate course examining the many aspects of oppression." --"MultiCultural Review " "This is a superb collection of work at the vanguard of a resurgent interest in how privilege works across a wide range of human experience. Kimmel and Ferber have skillfully knit together a coherent picture of otherwise unexamined and under-theorized 'connections' in a dauntingly vast and fragmented literature." --Troy Duster, New York University "This excellent anthology forcefully illustrates how bigotry based on ethnic, racial, gender, and sexual stereotyping confines and blights the lives of those deemed 'inferior.' I'd like to see this book assigned in every high school and college campus in the country." --Martin Duberman, Distinguished Professor of History Emeritus, CUNY "Finally a book on how the other half (or less) lives, and how their status, power and way of life is related to the debasing and suffering of others. This volume will start to bring some semblance of balance to the study of inequality and injustice in the United States." --Pedro Noguera, Harvard University

Synopsis

In this new and timely anthology on the experience of privilege in Americaas it relates to holding the identity of the dominant gender, class, race, and sexual preferencesociologists Michael Kimmel and Abby Ferber, along with a wide range of contributors, challenge students to think more critically about the myriad inequalities in society and especially to become more aware of how the dynamics that create inequality for some also benefit others. Designed to be used in both introductory sociology and race, gender, and class courses, this exciting volume asks that privilegeand students own role in itbecome more visible. With both well-known and previously published pieces as well as new contributions, Privilege uses an intersectional approach to explore the ways in which race, class, gender and sexuality interact in the lives of those who are privileged by one or more of these identities. Kimmel and Ferber have brought together leading thinkers and writers on all of these dimensions, to examine both the parallels and the ruptures among these different but connected relationships.

Writing both personally and analytically, these essays can bring students inside the experiences, and enable us all to begin to theorize our own lives, as well as to explore the ways in which these systems intersect in peoples lives. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Quintessential Starting Point for Understanding Privilege 14. April 2004
Von Steven Samuels - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Sociologists, psychologists, historians, English scholars, etc. are all now starting to look at the concept of "privilege." In dealing with all areas of societal interaction (e.g., Race, Class, Gender, Age, etc.), traditional focus has been on unempowered groups and what's wrong with them. The concept of privilege refocuses the argument on the invisible benefits the empowered groups have and don't recognize. Understanding privilege is truly the first step toward cross-group dialogue, and this book is spectacular starting point. It works for the uninitiated as well as for classroom use (as it contains several classic articles). This edited edition contains articles on all kinds of privilege, including race, gender, religion, college legacy, etc. A must-have on your shelves if you teach in this area, and a great way to start thinking about society in a new and enlightened way. I also can't imagine a more invigorating book for a group to sit around and discuss.

Dense but worth it 21. Mai 2014
Von Simone Meadows - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Everyone should at least skim through this book to open your mind up to some common forms of privilege in society over non-privilege that can be overlooked.
Beware if you have been told you just don't 'get it '! 25. Februar 2014

The book changed my daughter's life. She understood me totally for the first time. I had to read it to see why.
I felt affirmed frequently through out the book.
It would take reading this book to explain Rev Jeremiah Wright's 15 second rant that slowed Obama's march to the White House.
Recommendation: Read if you have the guts.
