Analyzing Inequality summarizes key issues in today's theoretically guided empirical research on social inequality, life course, and cross-national comparative sociology. It describes the progress made in terms of data sources, both cross-sectional and longitudinal; the new instruments that make inequality research possible; new ways of thinking and explaining; and empirical findings or important contributions of rigorous empirical research to our understanding. The chapters, each written by a distinguished social scientist, are of interest to both scholars and students. This is the only book to date to take stock of the state of the art in stratification research, examining data, methods, theory, and new empirical findings. Analyzing Inequality offers an unusually and impressively broad coverage of substantive topics in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Svallfors has produced a fitting tribute to the distinguished career of Robert Erikson. Leading scholars reflect on the current state of theory and research about inequality and social mobility in the U.S. and Europe. This insightful collection of essays deserves our attention." -- Thomas A. DiPrete * Columbia University *
"[It] is heartening to see the appearance of a book demonstrating the vibrancy and potential of quantitative research on social inequality internationally" -- Canadian Journal of Sociology Online
"A beautiful volume of truly informative and stimulating essays at the current frontiers of stratification research. In fact, what Analyzing Inequality achieves is to provide five eminent international scholars with the space to reflect on what they perceive as pressing problems of research in those specific fields to which they have contributed over their own life course and wherein they are clearly considered as among the leading experts worldwide." -- American Journal of Sociology
"In this excellent volume, leading social scientists show how theoretical and methodological advancements have transformed the study of social stratification and social inequality. The book is a rich source of information on the study of poverty, research on gender inequality, the unification of rational choice theory and large scale data analysis, and innovations in cross-national comparative research." -- Hans-Peter Blossfeld * Bamberg University *
"The book is well-written and covers many of the central topics for European and international mobility and attainment researchers." -- Contemporary Sociology
