Abstract

With income inequality on the rise and the ongoing economic downturn, the causes, consequences, and politics of inequality are undergoing a fundamental transformation. Updated and highly accessible, the fourth edition of Social Stratification provides refreshing take on existing theories, incorporates the latest data, and lends new perspectives to classic debates.

Notes

Reprint of chapter in: Sociological Perspectives on Labor Markets, edited by Ivar Berg. New York: Academic Press. 1981: 49-74. Kalleberg's items in EndNote go back as far as 1988, so the original article is not in the database. vh
