Summary

Praised for its thorough research and scholarship, Social Stratification and Inequality provides a comprehensive, up-to-date exploration of the global economic and social divisions in human societies. While the book is grounded in the nature of social stratification in the United States, this edition maintains a commitment to keeping a global perspective. Comparative information on the United States and other countries and an overview of changes in social stratification, gives readers a global perspective on class conflict.
