Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847699153, Textbook Binding)This textbook anthology takes a fresh approach to the study of inequality, promoting a sharper understanding of the intersection of race, class, and gender. It helpfully encourages students to grapple with research articles, both quantitative and qualitative, while offering a readable array of provocative essays, many of them written by prominent scholars.
The aim of the text is to give students a more solid, analytical foundation for understanding inequality, while exposing them to the key public debates in American society. Arrighi's lively introduction appeals to student interests and leads them smoothly toward a deeper understanding of the sociological research contained in the book.

As the age of globalization and New Media unite disparate groups of people in new ways, the continual transformation and interconnections between ethnicity, class, and gender become increasingly complex. This reader, comprised of a diverse array of sources ranging from the New York Times to the journals of leading research universities, explores these issues as systems of stratification that work to reinforce one another. Understanding Inequality provides students and academics with the basic hermeneutics for considering new thought on ethnicity, class, and gender in the 21st century.
