This volume deals with the question of inequality through race, class and gender. Most studies only concern themselves with either class and gender, or with the combination of race or gender. What happens if we throw all three concepts into the analysis? The volume seeks to explore how race, class and gender are interrelated in the study of topics such as social transformation, national identity, sexuality and work. The volume should be of interest to both students and scholars in gender and race studies, labor history, sociology, history, non-Western history.
