Review:

Praise for Prior Editions:

"Even America is not immune to the forces that give rise to class warfare. Now in a thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded third edition, "Social Stratification: Class, Race, and Gender in Sociological Perspective" by David B. Grusky continues to be the primary text comprising contributions by leading academicians and researchers on the issues associated with poverty and inequality within the United States. A standard text for more than a decade, this new third edition is an impressive body of sustained and seminal scholarship continues to insure that "Social Stratification" is an invaluable and emphatically recommended, core addition to professional and academic library Sociological Studies reference collections and supplemental reading lists." -"The Midwest Book Review"

"While maintaining the depth and breadth of its predecessor, more than 30 new contributions to the second edition of "Social Stratification" strengthen its coverage of new theoretical and empirical work in social stratification. It reflects a clear vision of the scientific and intellectual history of the field, but it will also shape research and scholarship for years to come. For researchers, teachers, and students, "Social Stratification" will be an indispensable resource." -Robert M. Hauser, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"The revised edition of "Social Stratification" is the definitive reader in the field. In this new edition, the author has revised virtually every section, adding both additional classics and new essays. For coverage of the field, this is a must-read." -Barbara Reskin, Harvard University
