9780131849686: Social Inequality and Social Stratification in US Society

Using a concise and easy-to-understand style, this guide provides an integrated approach to 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 significant and effective organization incorporates fresh conceptualizations, new research findings, and census data, with the fundamentals of social stratification. Five-part organization: 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. As a useful reference for professionals in the fields of sociology, social problems, or race and minorities/gender.

For undergraduate courses in Social Stratification, Race, Class, and Gender, and Introduction to Gender Studies.

Product Description:

Social Inequality and Social Stratification in US Society, 1st edition uses a historical and conceptual framework to explain social stratification and social inequality.

The historical scope gives context to each issue discussed and allows the reader to understand how each topic has evolved over the course of American history. The authors use qualitative data to help explain socioeconomic issues and connect related topics.

Each chapter examines major concepts, so readers can see how an individual’s success in stratified settings often relies heavily on their access to valued resources–types of capital which involve finances, schooling, social networking, and cultural competence. Analyzing the impact of capital types throughout the text helps map out the prospects for individuals, families, and also classes to maintain or alter their position in social-stratification systems.

From the Publisher:

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.
