Summary
    Voices from the Margins: Fresh Perspectives on an Introduction to Sociology brings together underrepresented voices and perspectives to address an array of topics through the experiences of those with multiple, intersecting marginalized identities. The issues presented speak to what is relevant today through the voices of women, people of color, sexual minorities, and people with disabilities.

    The reader is organized into five sections. The first deals with the who, what, and how of sociology. The second addresses self, culture, socialization, and deviance. Readings in the third consider class, race, gender, and sexuality. In the fourth the material covers a range of social institutions, and the final section explores the concept of environmental sociology. The growing sub-discipline of digital sociology is threaded throughout the text.

    Voices from the Margins reflects the increasing diversity of today's college students and the general population, and centers knowledge around those who have traditionally been disenfranchised. It is well suited to foundational courses in the discipline and is also an excellent supplemental reader for general courses in social science.

    Chandra Ward earned her master's degree in sociology at Texas State University, San Marcos and is currently a doctoral candidate at Georgia State University. She is a lecturer in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia.
