Seeks to sensitize students to core issues of inequality, and encourages discussion by presenting a multidimensional view. Social Inequality: Forms, Causes, and Consequences, Fourth Edition, conveys to students a complex and up-to-date view of social inequality in the United States in a way that informs, draws them in, and encourages them to look at the inequality surrounding them. 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 explanations for 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.
