'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.
