This concise and easy-to-read guide discusses the implications of social class, race and ethnicity, and gender—explaining how each relates to economic, social, and political inequality. Its straightforward perspective views the considerations of race and gender as central to a full appreciation of the composition and dynamics of class systems. A five-part organization presents readers with effective coverage of the subject: — Part I gives a broad overview and introduction to the field; Part II provides an expanded discussion of the evolution and institutionalization of industrial class systems; Part III covers the basic elements of inequality: economics, prestige, and politics; Part Four includes separate chapters on life chances and lifestyles as well as class consciousness; and Part V offers an exploration of social mobility.

Using a concise and easy-to-understand style, this guide provides an integrated approach to the implications of social class, minority class, and gender, and explains how each relate to economic, social, and political inequality. The author emphasizes that the considerations of color and gender are central to a full appreciation of the composition and dynamics of class systems. The Second Edition builds on this perspective with the recent outpouring of fresh conceptualizations, new research findings, and data, resulting in a significant and effective reorganization.About the Author:
