The new gilded age the critical inequality debates of our time by David B Grusky( file )
11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,654 libraries worldwide
Income inequality is an increasingly pressing issue in the United States and around the world. This book explores five critical issues to introduce some of the key moral and empirical questions about income, gender, and racial inequality: & bull; Do we have a moral obligation to eliminate poverty? & bull; Is inequality a necessary evil that's the best way available to motivate economic action and increase total output? & bull; Can we retain a meaningful democracy even when extreme inequality allows the rich to purchase political privilege? & bull; Is the recent stalling out of long-term de
Social stratification : class, race, and gender in sociological perspective ( Book )
37 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 1,140 libraries worldwide
The field of stratification is being transformed and reshaped by advances in theory and quantitative modeling as well as by new approaches to the analysis of economic, racial, and gender inequality. Although these developments are revolutionary in their implications, until now there has been no comprehensive effort to bring together the classic articles that have defined and redefined the contours of the field. In this up-to-date anthology, the history of stratification research unfolds in systematic fashion, with the introductory articles in each section providing examples of the major research traditions in the field and the concluding essays (commissioned from leading scholars) providing broader programmatic statements that identify current controversies and unresolved issues. The resulting collection of articles both celebrates the diversity of theoretical approaches and reveals the cumulative nature of ongoing research. This comprehensive reader is designed as a primary text for introductory courses on social stratification and as a supplementary text for advanced courses on social classes, occupations, labor markets, or social mobility
The declining significance of gender? ( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 802 libraries worldwide
"The last half-century has witnessed substantial change in the opportunities and rewards available to men and women in the workplace. While the gender pay gap narrowed and female labor force participation rose dramatically in recent decades, some dimensions of gender inequality--most notably the division of labor in the family--have been more resistant to change, or have changed more slowly in recent years than in the past. These trends suggest that one of two possible futures could lie ahead: an optimistic scenario in which gender inequalities continue to erode, or a pessimistic scenario where contemporary institutional arrangements persevere and the gender revolution stalls. In The Declining Significance of Gender?, editors Francine Blau, Mary Brinton, and David Grusky bring together top gender scholars in sociology and economics to make sense of the recent changes in gender inequality, and to judge whether the optimistic or pessimistic view better depicts the prospects and bottlenecks that lie ahead. It examines the economic, organizational, political, and cultural forces that have changed the status of women and men in the labor market. The contributors examine the economic assumption that discrimination in hiring is economically inefficient and will be weeded out eventually by market competition. They explore the effect that family-family organizational policies have had in drawing women into the workplace and giving them even footing in the organizational hierarchy. Several chapters ask whether political interventions might reduce or increase gender inequality, and others discuss whether a social ethos favoring egalitarianism is working to overcome generations of discriminatory treatment against women. Although there is much rhetoric about the future of gender inequality, The Declining Significance of Gender? provides a sustained attempt to consider analytically the forces that are shaping the gender revolution. Its wide-ranging analysis of contemporary gender disparities will stimulate readers to think more deeply and in new ways about the extent to which gender remains a major fault line of inequality."--Publisher's website
Poverty and inequality ( Book )
11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 723 libraries worldwide
This volume brings together leading public intellectuals Amartya Sen, Martha C. Nussbaum, François Bourguignon, William J. Wilson, Douglas S. Massey, and Martha A. Fineman to take stock of current analytic understandings of poverty and inequality. Contemporary research on inequality has largely relied on conceptual advances several decades old, even though the basic structure of global inequality is changing in fundamental ways. The reliance on conventional poverty indices, rights-based approaches to poverty reduction, and traditional modeling of social mobility has left scholars and policymakers poorly equipped to address modern challenges. The contributors show how contemporary poverty is forged in neighborhoods, argue that discrimination in housing markets is a profound source of poverty, suggest that gender inequalities in the family and in the social evaluation of the caretaking role remain a hidden dimension of inequality, and develop the argument that contemporary inequality is best understood as an inequality in fundamental human capabilities. This book demonstrates in manifold ways how contemporary scholarship and policy must be recast to make sense of new and emerging forms of poverty and social exclusion

Occupational ghettos : the worldwide segregation of women and men by Maria Charles( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 529 libraries worldwide
"The last half-century has witnessed dramatic declines in gender inequality, evidenced by the rise of egalitarian views on gender roles and the narrowing of long-standing gender gaps in university attendance and labor force participation. These developments, while spectacular, have been coupled with similarly impressive forms of resistance to equalization, most notably the continuing tendency for women to crowd into female "occupational ghettos." Why has such extreme segregation persisted even as other types of gender inequality have lessened? Why is segregation especially extreme in precisely those countries that appear most committed to egalitarian reform and family-friendly policies?" "The authors address these questions by developing a new archive of cross-national data and applying new models and methods of analysis to this archive. The results indicate that two deep structures underlie occupational segregation: a horizontal dynamic that allocates men into the manual sector and women into the nonmanual sector, and a vertical dynamic that allocates men to the most desirable occupations within each sector. Although egalitarian principles and policies are gradually delegitimating vertical forms of segregation, horizontal forms of segregation continue to be supported by persistent ideologies of gender difference that are easily reconciled with liberal egalitarian ideology. Far from being an "ascriptive residue" that steadily withers away, occupational segregation is an organic feature of postindustrial labor markets."--Jacket

Social differentiation and social inequality : essays in honor of John Pock ( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 198 libraries worldwide
The field of social stratification is being transformed and reshaped by advances in theory and method as well as by new approaches to the analysis of macroeconomic, institutional, demographic, and ascriptive sources of inequality. In this tribute to John C. Pock, the editors have brought together established and emerging stars in the field. The result is an important new statement on contemporary developments and controversies in stratification scholarship. The chapters address such matters as recent trends in gender attitudes and the gender gap in earnings, race and class differentials in life chances and income, cross-national and institutional variability in employment systems and inequality, the division of domestic labor within households, and the implications of demographic change for social inequality
