What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
A far-ranging and profound inquiry into the causes and effects of human inequality as well as into the foundations and consequences of political and economic power. . . . In a tour de force of sweeping scholarship Lenski guides us through the centuries to the most remote corners of the earth. . . . A masterpiece of comparative social analysis.—Heinz Eulau, American Political Science Review

General explanations of those varieties of inequality which have decisive consequences for observable events are still in demand. But whoever embarks on the search will find Lenski's imaginative and substantial work an indispensable guide.—Ralf Dahrendorf, American Sociological Review
