This textbook reflects a hybrid approach to studying stratification. It addresses the knowledge accumulated by stratification scholars and challenges students to apply this information to their social world. Features include: • The text is divided into basic concepts (theoretical and methodological) and applications (e.g., to class, poverty, mobility, education, gender, race). • Each chapter includes a list of key concepts, questions for thought, suggested exercises, and multimedia resources (print, internet, and films). • A unique methodological chapter provides students the skills they will need to be able to read contemporary sociological literature. • The selection of chapters and chapter content provide students a sense of the topics, questions, and research that dominate contemporary research on social stratification and inequality. • Research-oriented approach reflecting the field of stratification studies.
