Editorial Reviews

Angela J. Hattery
This is scholarship in the best sense of the word: politically engaged, theoretically and empirically informed, and powerfully argued. Complex yet comprehensible. The readings—from Karl Marx to Erik Wright—have been carefully selected and arranged. The strength of this book is the incorporation of non-class based inequalities—specifically race and gender. The inclusion of readings from the 'race, class, and gender' paradigm makes this book the most inclusive and expansive anthology available.
Dalton Conley
This volume provides the sociology student with the essentials for a sophisticated theoretical understanding of social stratification in general, and class in particular. A great introduction to the classic and contemporary debates on class analysis for any student of inequality at any academic level.
Charles Lemert
Even more now than when it first appeared, Social Class and Stratification is a welcome contribution to renewal of interest in class as the decisive force behind social inequalities. Teachers and students alike are once again in Rhonda Levine's debt for her edited collection of and introduction to the most current texts enlivening the debate over class power.
