Marginal Groups and Mainstream American Culture

Estes, Yolanda D.
Publisher: University Press of Kansas
ISBN: 0700610480

Multidisciplinary and multicultural, Marginal Groups and Mainstream American Culture addresses marginalization at a variety of social levels and within many different social phenomena, going beyond familiar cases dealing with race, ethnicity, and gender to examine such outsiders as renegade children, conservative Christians, and the physically and mentally disabled. And because women are especially subject to the effects of marginalization, feminist concerns and the marginalization of sexual practices provide a common denominator for many of the essays.
