Sociologists in Action on Inequalities: Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality is a brief anthology of original readings that are perfect for Race and Ethnicity; Race, Class, and Gender; Introduction to Sociology; Social Problems; Social Inequality; Senior Capstone and other courses taught through the central lens of diversity. Like its companion Sociologists in Action volume, on social change and social justice, this collection brings together dozens of accounts of sociologists who are using their sociology to make a positive impact on society. Each of the 30 selections describe, through firsthand experience, how sociology can be used to address enduring problems of prejudice and discrimination based on race, nationality, class, gender, and sexuality. Discussion questions and suggested readings and resources at the end of every chapter will provide students with opportunities to delve further into the topics covered and help create full and nuanced discussions, grounded in the "real world" work of public and applied sociologists.

I like Newman's book better.
Still trying to determine if book would work as a supplemental text for Social Problems class, to be taught Fall 2015. It wouldn't work as well for the Introduction to Sociology course.
It provides a wide array of information concerning diversity in society.
It's fascinating but too sophisticated for my students.
