Social Inequality - examining our present while understanding our past

Social Inequality and Social Statification in US Society, 1/e includes three core tools (historical scope, qualitative data, and a conceptual framework) to explain social stratification and social inequality.

The historical scope gives context to each issue discussed, and allows the reader to understand how each topic has evolved over the course of American history. Qualitative data helps explain socioeconomic issues and connects related topics. A conceptual framework serves to analyze the impact of capital types throughout the text, and map the prospects for individuals, families, and classes to maintain or alter their position in social-stratification systems. Additional theories and concepts help to further analyze topics throughout the text.
