Synopsis:

Viewing our society from a conflict perspective.

 

This introductory text, written from a conflict perspective, emphasizes four themes: diversity, the struggle by the powerless to achieve social justice, the changing economy, and globalization. In Conflict and Order: Understanding Society studies the forces that lead to stability and change in society and asks:

  • Who benefits from the existing social arrangements, and who does not?
  • How are human beings shaped by society?
  • What are the forces that maintain social stability, produce social inequality, and resist social change?
