- Celine-Marie Pascale - American University, Washington DC, USA
Class and Inequality | Social Stratification
This anthology will include 4 sections – race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality, wealth/poverty – and approximately 20 total readings. The book, as well as each section, will include comprehensive introductions to frame the international issues for U.S. students.
A great text and insight into the representations of inequalities and how these impact on culture and situations.
Excellent for a range of social science and humanities courses especially those on issues of globalsiation and wider contextualising of the local situations facing us today. Students of sociology, politics and social policy can only benifit form this resource.
Although my teaching plans have changed so that I will not be teaching this course this year, I will definitely consider this text in the future! I like its even-handed representation of cases from all over the world.
A useful text recommended reading for BSc in Adult / Mental Heath / Children's and Learning Disability Nursing
This is an excellent book that draws on cross-national empirical observations to give a rich perspective on social inequality and the politics of representation.
This collection of essays is engaging and accessible. It provides a clear analysis of inequalities and the politics of representation in a global context, drawing on a wide range of case studies.
Social inequality and the politics of representation spans a significant range of specific cases relevant to race, class, gender and sexuality on an international level. The range of topics covered supports students to examine the connections in a global context and to interpret the implications of racial, gender and sexual identity in practical terms.
This is a good book for exploring how representation is often not what it seems.
The book is good, but it's not quite what I'm looking for. It's laid out for class, race, and gender (sexuality), but I'm looking for a book that highlights class, party, and power ala Weber's typology.
