As the age of globalization and New Media unite disparate groups of people in new ways, the continual transformation and interconnections between ethnicity, class, and gender become increasingly complex. This reader, comprised of a diverse array of sources ranging from the New York Times to the journals of leading research universities, explores these issues as systems of stratification that work to reinforce one another. Understanding Inequality provides students and academics with the basic hermeneutics for considering new thought on ethnicity, class, and gender in the 21st century.

«The book certainly is intended for social stratification classes. Students who read Understanding Inequality will have the benefit of comprehending the multiple dimensions of social stratification. Where most textbooks on inequality limit themselvesto class analysis, Arrighi's anthology exposes us to both economic and non-economic facets of inequality. However, the book's worth is not limited to this. It can be used in theory, gender, race and ethnic classes. ...the anthology is iw worth considering for adoption. The editor needs to be praised for the hard work that she has put towards selecting relevant articles and for writing an excellent introduction and editorial notes...»
