Colaborador(es): Grusky, David B | Weisshaar, Katherine R.
Tipo de material: materialTypeLabelLibroEditor: Philadelphia Westview Press, 2014Edición: Fourth Edition.Descripción: xxi, 1173 pages : illustrations ; 26 cm.ISBN: 9780813346717.Tema(s): ESTRATIFICACIÓN SOCIAL | IGUALDAD | ESTATUS SOCIAL | CLASES SOCIALES | CIENCIAS SOCIALES | ESTUDIOS DE GÉNERO | Resumen: "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. The fourth edition includes fifty new or updated readings and a new streamlined organization which allows the evolution of stratification scholarship to unfold in a systematic fashion. The new readings examine the latest trends in economic inequality, including the social construction of racial categories, the new immigrant economy, new forms of segregation and neighborhood inequality, the uneven and stalled gender revolution, the role of new educational forms and institutions in generating equality and inequality, and the extent of anti-gay discrimination in the labor market. The result is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and methodologically diverse text appropriate for sophisticated undergraduate and graduate courses on poverty, inequality, social stratification, social problems, the labor market, social class, social mobility, and race and ethnicity. "--Resumen: "The study of poverty and inequality has been thrust into the foreground as scholars, politicians, and policymakers respond to the spectacular increase in economic inequality and the slowing, stalling out, or even reversal of long-standing downward trends in other forms of inequality. The Grusky reader, which has been the mainstay of the field for well over a decade, has now been updated and revised to reflect ongoing changes in the structure of inequality and in the tools and concepts that scholars have used to understand these changes. In this heavily-updated fourth edition, the history of the field unfolds in systematic fashion, with the introductory articles in each section providing examples of the classical work that laid the conceptual or methodological foundation and the remaining chapters introducing students to the cutting-edge work that builds on that foundation and moves it forward. The resulting collection is comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and methodologically diverse. Although it is the classic primary text for courses on poverty, inequality, or gender, race, and class, it is also increasingly used as a supplementary text for sophisticated introductory sociology courses with an emphasis on issues of inequality"--
