Description

This book, which is designed to be used in introductory writing and critical thinking courses, focuses on culture in its broadest sense. Culture certainly refers to race and ethnicity, but it also reflects the values, beliefs, and behaviors of groups based on their age, gender, socioeconomic position, sexual preference, and situation in society. Thus, in addition to material on several racial and ethnic groups, it also includes writings by and about working-class writers, homeless people, gays and lesbians, and prisoners.
