About this item

Focusing on inequality in the US, this textbook looks at multiple dimensions in terms of class privilege, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and status and power in the global context, as well as their intersection. It also discusses the sociological study of inequality and challenges it poses to education and mobility, poverty and place, public policy, and the role of social movements. This edition includes analysis of economic recovery, growing economic divides, and stagnant wages; recent data on racial and gender wage gaps, trends in poverty and real wages, and the real value of the minimum wage; the treatment of African American men in the criminal justice system, increasing rates of discrimination against Arab Americans and Muslims, and the racial climate on college campuses; expanded discussion of same-sex marriage, new directions in the LGBT movement, and gender identity issues; the post-Citizens United state of campaign finance and the growth of Super PACs; more on housing costs and the suburbanization of poverty; debates over the Affordable Care Act, federal tax policy, minimum wage rates, and the regulation/deregulation of the financial and investment sector; critiques of No Child Left Behind and the Every Student Succeeds Act; and the Black Lives Matter movement.
