The Social Construction . I am not sure if its the book or just my professor, but the subject matter was really difficult to follow- and this is coming from a sociology major. Each chapter in this book is a story written from a different person about one of a cluster of topics. In the class, we were then tested on personal characteristics or opinions of the authors- not exactly what I would call academic.

Group experiences permanent inequality and is marginalized because they are not considered part of the hegemonic ideal-Have to concentrate on basic survival-direct; honest reaction to destructive treatment is avoided, resorting to disguised and indirect ways of acting and reacting. Cluster of Characteristics(Subordinates). the identification of certain jobs or activities as appropriate for woman and others for men, and claim that these divisions reflect natural differences in ability and or interest. Whether an individual personally sees themselves as male, female, or something in between. Gender role behavior.

This anthology examines the social construction of race, class, gender, and sexuality and the institutional bases for these relations. While other texts discuss various forms of stratification and the impact of these on members of marginalized groups, Ore provides a thorough discussion of how such systems of stratification are formed and perpetuated and how forms of stratification are interconnected. Critical thinking questions at the end of each reading and part opening essays aid students in understanding how the material relates to their lives and how their own attitudes, actions, and perspectives may serve to perpetuate a stratified system. 13 new readings have been added focusing on the experiences of immigrants, contemporary issues in social institutions, current examples of how the media portrays events and much more.

Was a required reading, hence I rented it. This book is pretty horrendous. The quality of the writings are terrible, not something I would consider Master's level reading, yet I had to read it in a Master's level program. Atrocious is also a word that comes to mind when remembering the readings I had to do. Would Not recommend to buy, perhaps you can 'borrow' a friends copy for your semester and save the dollars on the rental. This book is not even worth a rental. No new knowledge is gained from reading this book.

Great analysis for the deconstructing of social constructions such as race, gender, and class. Very easy to understand, and full of interesting topic material. From more works like this, you start to understand the disparity and hegemony that imbalances of power have perpetuated. With hope, we can progress to become a more equal and fair society for everyone

The book i recieved was in perfect condition (the one stated in the description) and I recieved the product in a timely manner even though it was ordered over the holidays.

A collection of more evidence that academia's only real goal in the US is to divide the races whenever possible. The book is an nonconstructive, skin deep glance at the poor and the unproven conclusion that the white upper class is to blame for all problems in America; especially the poor and black. The short essays lack hard evidence to prove their point. Many essays in this book are nothing more than jealous wealth envy at it's most ugly. Academic elites like my professor may buy believe this kind of garbage, but reality and college text books in social science are two completely different things. Unfortunately, Sociology is not a real science and instead has become nothing more than a collection of people who make a claim, then 'research' the claim by citing like minded authors in their ranting papers. <yawn>

OK - so, I didn't read the whole book.
In general, it seemed like the message delivered was more of a divider than a uniter. While many would say would say we should be striving for equality, this book seemed to provide a view of making it a point of our differences and delivered no message of hope. Beleive it or not, not everyone is a victim.

Maybe I missed something.
The book, despite its name, spends little effort on the injustices done to socioeconomic class. Race is mentioned several times, but lacks thorough investigations into the psychological or social machinations that have created the inequalities that the book is supposed to cover. Sexual identity takes a disproportionately large space of the book, while unfortunately saying little more than 'this needs more research'. Minorities are given surprisingly little attention and detail, and those outside the United States (such as the Seljuks or other Turkic peoples in China) are completely ignored.

A lack of conclusions or even useful speculative conjecture make the book in general less than useful. The fact that all people are at some point for some reason victimized is ignored, and the impact of varied regions or histories is practically unmentioned. The general feel of the book also lead me (and the class who read it) to believe that it was written by a class of graduate students who submitted short essays that lacked the citations to be able to go out and do useful follow-up research (or, in some cases, to confirm the information at all).

This may be required reading for certain classes, but outside of those places I would not recommend it.
