Overview

This text provides an introduction to key concepts, current research findings, and theories in social inequality.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for an interdisciplinary undergraduate course that addresses what Marger (sociology, Michigan State U.) sees as a major deficiency that others either analyze only one form of social equality or analytically conflate them making it difficult to distinguish them. She engages class, racial and ethnic, gender, and political dimensions of the phenomenon. A text bank is available. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
