Introducing Race and Gender into Economics


Introducing Race and Gender into Economics is a ground breaking book which generates ideas for integrating race and gender issues into introductory economics courses. Providing an introduction to economics from the perspective of race and gender, it incorporates specific examples and encourages the reader to examine basic economic concepts. Each section gives an overview of how to modify standard courses, including macroeconomics, methodology, microeconomics as well as race and gender-sensitive issues. Essays include: a history of women in economics and why they may not find it an attractive field of study; the different learning styles of some African Americans; expecting more of Asian-American students based on the myth of the "model minority; " and the problems with data.
