9780205319497: Social Inequality: Forms, Causes, and Consequences (4th Edition)

Seeks to sensitize students to core issues of inequality, and encourages discussion by presenting a multidimensional view. Social Inequality: Forms, Causes, and Consequences, Fourth Edition, conveys to students a complex and up-to-date view of social inequality in the United States in a way that informs, draws them in, and encourages them to look at the inequality surrounding them. The book is based on the assumptions that social inequality is multidimensional and that in order to deal with inequality and its consequences we need to understand the explanations for it. Taking a historical and social structural approach, the author simply but compellingly gives a sense of the pervasiveness of social inequality and how it affects us all.

About the Author:

Charles E. Hurst grew up on the ethnic south-side of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and his experiences there fostered a life-long interest in social inequality and social theory.  He earned his Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and later his Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut.  He retired in 2008 as Professor of Sociology from The College of Wooster, after having taught courses on inequality in America and social theory for over 40 years.  His research resulted in articles on class consciousness, status inconsistency, and socioeconomic status and health care, and most recently, Amish society.  His books include The Anatomy of Social Inequality (C. V. Mosby 1979), Living Theory:  The Application of Classical Social Theory to Contemporary Life, 2nd edition (Allyn & Bacon 2005), and Social Inequality:  Forms, Causes and Consequences, 7th edition (Allyn & Bacon 2010).  During the last several years, his interest in social inequality led him to conduct research on issues related to women’s status, wealth, and class distinctions within the Ohio Amish community.  With a colleague, he has completed the first in-depth study of this settlement, soon to be published by Johns Hopkins University Press as An Amish Paradox:  Diversity and Change in the World’s Largest Amish Community.
