This anthology is based on a distinct theoretical framework that provides coherence and cohesion to the readings included, presenting the phenomena of racism, sexism, heterosexism, and classism as interlocking systems of oppression. Resting upon this oppression model are two sets of theories, one concerned with the phenomenon of privilege--the companion of oppression--and the other with resistance--the response to oppression. The significant number of readings addressing the different forms that resistance takes are perhaps the most important part of the book for students struggling with the questions "What is being done?" and "What can I do?"Heldke, Lisa is the author of 'Oppression, Privilege, and Resistance Theoretical Perspectives on Racism, Sexism, and Heterosexism', published 2003 under ISBN 9780072882438 and ISBN 0072882433.
