The word "privilege" gets thrown around a lot during discussions of inequality in America, whether it be about race, gender, or wealth. But how serious an issue is privilege, really? Is it manufactured by marginalized groups? Should those with marked advantages feel threatened? America prides itself on democratic ideals and advancement through merit and hard work. Are these ideals based on a lie? If so, what practical solutions can be undertaken to level the playing field? Presenting a wide variety of perspectives from authoritative voices, this volume unpacks a complex issue that many are uncomfortable confronting.
