From the Publisher
Using a concise and easy-to-understand style, this guide provides an integrated approach to the implications of social class, minority class, and gender, and explains how each relate to economic, social, and political inequality. The author emphasizes that the considerations of color and gender are central to a full appreciation of the composition and dynamics of class systems. The Second Edition builds on this perspective with the recent outpouring of fresh conceptualizations, new research findings, and data, resulting in a significant and effective reorganization.
