Understanding Social Inequality: Intersections of Class, Age, Gender, Ethnicity, and Race in Canada
Understanding Social Inequality examines the factors that contribute to inequality in Canada. A unique 'intersectional' framework demonstrates how the structures of inequality are organized along the lines of class, age, gender, race, and ethnicity. The book is divided into two parts: Part I considers the theoretical dimensions of inequality, while Part II takes a practical, case-study based approach. This new edition includes expanded coverage of youth, class inequality, ageism, everyday racism, and social place. With this insightful text students will be encouraged to draw their own conclusions about why inequality exists and how it can be rectified in Canadian society.
