"Social Class and Stratification" brings together classical statements on social
stratification with current and original scholarship to provide a foundation for
theoretical debate on the nature of race, class, and gender inequality. A section on
American stratification theory opens with Warner, continuing the debate on the
functionalist theory of stratification. Further selections by Parkin and Wright
revitalize the debates on the nature of social class today. Readings by Acker,
Hartmann, Baca-Zinn and Dill examine our understanding of gender inequality, while
theories by DuBois, Cox, and others provide competing theoretical foundations for
understanding the complexity of race. Finally, an essay by Patricia Hill Collins
discusses the basis for conceptualizing the intersection of race, class, and gender.
Levine's concluding chapter reflects on the importance of class analysis and offers an
excellent overview of recent theory and research on the intersection of race, class,
and gender inequality. This new edition includes a revised and updated Editor's
Introduction and Conclusion, along with five new chapters on race and gender from top
researchers in the field.
