9780131984752: Social Inequality in Canada: Patterns, Problems &Policies (5th Edition)

Social Inequality in Canada is a collection of twenty-eight articles that cover all of the major aspects of social inequality.  The text covers two broad components: objective or structural conditions of social inequality (power, poverty and wealth, occupations, and educational attainment, in particular) and ideologies that help support these differences.  Readers who would prefer a more egalitarian society than currently exists in Canada will find reasons for both optimism and pessimism in the research presented here. 

The studies in this collection demonstrate that some types of inequality are generally becoming more marked over time, while others have considerably diminished, and still more that show little change in recent decades.
