Facing the Issues: Class, Status, and Power ("Ruth's Minions' Opinions")
Sociology Student Journal, Volume 1, Issue 1, May 2008

Dr. Chananie-Hill's SOC 345 Class, Status, and Power class (a.k.a., "Ruth's Minions")

The seven semester papers (below) were voted as most publishable based on double-blind peer evaluations submitted for SOC 345 Class, Status and Power, Spring 2008, at Manchester University.  As the instructor, it is my absolute pleasure to introduce you, the curious reader, to these fine examples of the insightful and articulate work done by members of this class regarding important and controversial sociological topics of our present day.  I wish to stress how proud I am of their work as a class, and that the seven papers presented here were chosen by the students themselves.  I am honored to have been their instructor for the semester.
