In Race, Class, and Gender, Paula Rothenberg offers scholarly selections from authors such as Beverly Tatum, Michelle Alexander, Annette Lareau, and Jonathan Kozol, as well as historical documents like the Three-Fifths Compromise, firsthand narrative accounts of how these issues have affected the lives of individuals, and popular press pieces reporting on discrimination in everyday life.
