About this book


This accessible text explores the staggering rise in inequality in recent years. It includes recent empirical material on all the key dimensions of inequality, including class, gender, ethnicity, age and disability, and considers both classical and new theoretical approaches to the study of these dimensions of social stratification and difference. The exercises and overall active learning approach offer students ample scope to exercise and develop their sociological skills.
