Bibliographic information


'This book highlights the multilayered and highly stratified character of social networks and brings to the fore the need for a more nuanced contextual analysis, paying attention to the complex nature of social stratification today, both within and across national boundaries ... It is the richness of the material in this book along these lines that makes it such an important contribution to the field.' - Floya Anthias, University of East London, United Kingdom
