9780190216405: Rigging the Game: How Inequality is Reproduced in Everyday Life

In Rigging the Game Michael Schwalbe offers a clear and compelling introduction to how the rules that shape economic life and everyday interaction generate and perpetuate inequality in American society. Guided by the questions How did the situation get this way? and How does it stay this way?, Schwalbe tracks inequality from its roots to its regulation. With its lively combination of analysis and stories, Rigging the Game is an innovative tool for teaching about the inequalities of race, class, and gender. In the final chapter, "Escaping the Inequality Trap," Schwalbe helps students understand how inequality can be challenged and overcome.

Review:


"I really like this book and I bet that students will love it. It's not overly theoretical, and it relies on real-world examples. That's a unique and desirable combination of features."--Matt Huffman, University of California, Irvine


"The use of stories is effective in illustrating the ideas of the book; stories draw students in and generate lively discussions in class. The discussion questions at the end of each story are spot on."--Deborah Safron, Michigan State University


"I like Schwalbe's inclusion of steps to action and positive social change. This will be good for students who might otherwise feel hopeless after realizing how entrenched and pervasive inequality is in our world."--Tennille Allen, Lewis University
