9781565840218: Social Stratification in the United States: The American Profile Poster Revised and Expanded

A benchmark book-and-poster on American comparative wealth that shows who earns what, who lives with whom, and who works where. This full-color book-and-poster set brings together primary data on income, wealth, race, and marital and occupational status to provide a vivid picture of the U.S. social structure. One thousand color-coded figures make it possible to compare social groups, and understand how income distribution relates to race, sex, education, and occupation. With graphics and careful explanations, the booklet shows how to make the most of the poster, and reveals through comparison the considerable changes in America's social landscape as we enter a new century. Originally published in 1979, The American Profile Poster has become a staple in classrooms, homes, offices, and union halls.

Review:

A bleak, statistically meticulous, and even-tempered presentation of trends that ought to alarm anyone. -- Robert Lekachman, New York Times Book Review

A unique achievement.... It conveys important political messages in a non-dogmatic and inviting way. Every activist and educator should have it up in a prominent place. -- Barbara Ehrenreich

There is a crippling lack of information...with regard to some of the basic facts of the American socio-economic system. This attractive poster goes a long way toward remedying that deficiency. I am happy to recommend it wholeheartedly. -- Robert Heilbroner

[T]ransforms the percentages and median figures you frequently hear into a form you can see and drawings you can grasp fairly easily. -- Sylvia Porter, Daily News
