Social Inequality in a Global Age

social-inequality-in-a-global-ageScott R. Sernau’s Social Inequality in a Global Age provides a sociological framework for analyzing inequality within the American society as well as analyzing the relationship between global stratification systems and internal  inequality. Incorporating a great balance between theory and empirical evidence, the book:

• Places each issue and dimension of inequality in the context of a changing global economy.

• Engages  in the subject matter with lively writing and fascinating cases, but also interprets these lived experiences by introducing classical and contemporary theories of stratification.

• The intersection of race, class, and gender is not just stated but illustrated throughout the book as a pervasive institutionalized system of privilege and oppression.
