Institutional Determinants of Social Inequality Book Description :

Understanding the factors that create and maintain social inequities is a core question in social psychology. Research has so far focused on the role of individual stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination. However, there is no such thing as a "biased" act of prejudiced individuals, structural factors in the reproduction of social inequalities. Indeed, people are immersed in a world, and that is the way forward. In this research topic, we propose to bring together the ideology and practice of the government. This can be done by the researcher, who is responsible for the work of the researcher, the researcher, the researcher, the researcher, the researcher, the researcher, the researcher and the researcher.

Social Inequality Book Description :

Like past editions, this ninth edition of Social Inequality: Forms, Causes, and Consequences is a user-friendly introduction to the study of social inequality. This book conveys the pervasiveness and extensiveness of social inequality in the United States within a comparative context, to show how inequality occurs, how it affects all of us, and what is being done about it. This edition benefits from a variety of changes that have significantly strengthened the text. The authors pay increased attention to disability, transgender issues, intersectionality, experiences of Muslims, Hispanic populations, and immigration. The 9th edition also includes content on the fall-out from the recession across various groups. The sections on global inequalities have been greatly updated, emphasizing comparative inequalities and the impact of the process of globalization on inequality internationally. The authors have also added material on several current social movements, including Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, and Marriage Equality.

Social Inequality Book Description :

The study of social inequality is and has been one of the key concerns of social scientists. Social class is as important to the understanding of late twentieth-century industrial societies as it was to their early twentieth-century counterparts. The causes and consequences of these trends in social inequality have been the subject of a large body of scholarship. Talk of inequality, particularly economic inequality, in the public sphere is commonplace in this era. Definitely, various aspects of social inequality, such as race; gender, class, sexual orientation, and immigrant status, have been the subject of protest, debate, legislation, and judicial action for much of the last century. Inequality in its various forms is often the animating force behind much of contemporary political debates and social movements. This book covers the utmost, innovative studies on issues of social inequality from a wide-ranging diversity of theoretical and methodological perspectives. Recent studies focusing on issues of social inequality are reviewed; it is also focused to cutting edge summaries of prior research and productive exchanges that will stimulate future research on issues of social inequality. It is important to note that educational inequality-as measured by the dispersion of educational attainment- has not widened in recent decades. Some studies suggest that there is indeed a correlation between income inequality and health and social problems. Moreover, racial and gender disparities in educational outcomes have narrowed, often substantially, in the last 40 years. Providing an in-depth comparative analysis of inequality and the stratification in this era, this book will be a timely addition for students and scholars of globalization studies, social inequality, sociology, and cultural and social anthropology.

Understanding Social Inequality Book Description :

Moving beyond the traditional dichotomies of social theory, Understanding Social Inequality brings the study of social stratification and inequality into the 21st century. Starting with the widely agreed "fact" that the world is becoming more unequal, this book pulls together the "identity of displacement" in sociology and the "spaces of flow" of geography to show how place has become an increasingly important focus for understanding new trends in social inequality. The book charts a path through current debates and issues that studies of social inequality cannot afford to ignore. Accessible and engagingly written, this book stimulates the "sociological imagination", prompting readers to link personal experiences and public issues.

Social Inequality and Public Health Book Description :

Public health in the early 21st century increasingly considers how social inequalities impact on individual health, moving away from the focus on how disease relates to the individual person. This 'new public health' identifies how social, economic and political factors affect the level and distribution of individual health, through their effects on individual behaviours, the social groups people belong to, the character of relationships to others and the characteristics of the societies in which people live. The rising social inequalities that can be seen in nearly every country in the world today present not just a moral danger, but a mortal danger as well. Social inequality and public health brings together the latest research findings from some of the most respected medical and social scientists in the world. It surveys four pathways to understanding the social determinants of health: differences in individual health behaviours; group advantage and disadvanta≥ psychosocial factors in individual health; and healthy and unhealthy societies, shedding light on the costs and consequences of today's high-inequality social models. This exciting book brings together leaders in the field discussing their latest research and is a must-read for anyone interested in public health and social inequalities internationally.
