Summary

American society is stratified by several factors, including race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and political leanings. Social Inequality explores the origins of this stratification, how it affects us, and what can be done about it. The book is based on the assumptions that social inequality is multidimensional and that in order to deal with inequality and its consequences we need to understand the theories behind it. Taking a historical and social structural approach, the author simply but compellingly gives a sense of the pervasiveness of social inequality and how it affects us all.
