Written by four authors from different disciplinary backgrounds, this reader promotes a commitment to an intersectional approach to teaching race, class, gender and sexuality. Unlike most books of its kind, it highlights the duality of privilege and oppression and the effects that race, gender, and sexuality have on our lives. This reader includes poems, reflective literary prose, historical events and documents, images drawn from the media, contemporary statistics of inequalities, visual images, and tools that empower students to become agents for social change.

In short, The Matrix Reader offers a wealth of insight on the intersection of race, sexuality, gender, class, and diversity, but I do not believe the book warrants a price of nearly $100. The text is a diverse collection of thoughts and ideas (e.g., essays, research papers, poetry, and data tables) from a multitude of sources.

Reader is not a linear book. Instead, each chapter, written by a different author, is devoted to a different subject, drawing from a broad range of topics. The writers come from a host of backgrounds, and each unique perspective reveals a different approach on how to analyze the sociological and historical factors that have shaped the modern dynamics of oppression, power, privilege, inequality, and prejudice. As the book makes clear, many of the forces playing influential roles in our lives often operate in secrecy and behind closed doors that many are wholly unaware of. The text is designed to bring such phenomenon into the collective consciousness.

Additionally, a large chunk of the book is devoted toward the benefits of diversity, the means to cultivate diversity in organizations, and suggestions for becoming agents of social change.

My only critique of this book is that it tends to make prescriptions for change in broad sweeping generalizations, which can often take away from the individual’s role in shaping their own experiences in a multicultural society. Furthermore, by categorizing all people as either “privileged” or “oppressed” tends to over-simplify very complicated and multifaceted issues. Many of the chapters in The Matrix Reader suggest that external and environmental factors are wholly responsible for the personal experience at the expense of individual autonomy.

I read this book as part of a graduate seminary course on leading diverse organizations and found it to be quite thought provoking, to say the least.

I had to have the book for an interim class that I took. There are tons of articles, and most of them are very dry and hard to read, but its actually a bargain if you absolutely have to have it.

I rented this box for a Sociology class. While my interaction with Amazon was excellent I must say that you need to be aware that this book talks and deals with race from a very one sided view. Among some hot button topics, "Everyone is racist" and there is nothing you can do to prevent this. Also "Individualism by whites only contributes to racial divides". This book has many very absolute statements that do not directly reflect the reality of society. At first I thought it was just me not getting what the authors were trying to say. But in the margins of this rental books were comments and sections highlighted by two different previous renters pointing out the exact things I have mention. I was just glad to not be the only one who noticed how one sided the letter were that were chosen by the editors. If you have to get the book. Allow a lot of time to read it... and scratch your head in the process.

I have rented books for school before and always been pleased. This one is so soiled and wrinkled I don't want to even hold it.
Its going to help me pass my class so I'm happy.
