<FONT SIZE="2"></FONT><P><FONT SIZE="2">This book shows how the social constructions of time, space, race, gender and class intersect with each other to produce particular social phenomena that are enduring and significant for our society. Leading the reader through examples drawn from around the world, the author shows how these categories are social constructions; historically formed, ideologically loaded, and subject to change. </FONT></P><FONT SIZE="2"></FONT>
