Emerging Intersections, an anthology of ten previously unpublished essays, looks at the problems of inequality and oppression from new angles and promotes intersectionality as an interpretive tool that can be utilized to better understand the ways in which race, class, gender, ethnicity, and other dimensions of difference shape our lives today. The book showcases innovative contributions that expand our understanding of how inequality affects people of color, demonstrates the ways public policies reinforce existing systems of inequality, and shows how research and teaching using an intersectional perspective compels scholars to become agents of change within institutions. By offering practical applications for using intersectional knowledge, Emerging Intersections will help bring us one step closer to achieving positive institutional change and social justice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Altogether, this book is an excellent illustration of the potential of intersectional analysis to further understand and address inequality in the U.S. It unveils relationships of power that traditional studies of inequality often miss by treating inequalities separately. Most importantly, the book shows the importance of establishing how inequalities intersect in order to better guide the complex actions and tailored interventions that their perverse enmeshing requires."
--Journal of American Ethnic History
