    Frameworks of Inequality: An Intersectional Perspective provides students with research-based articles that address the various ways society, institutions, and individuals experience and move through unjust practices that have been found as normative and intentional. Readers learn how systems of oppression lead to and exacerbate the way inequality impacts social experiences, especially with regard to the access (or lack thereof) afforded to particular individuals or groups.

    The readings in Section 1 help to define social inequality and speak to the value of viewing issues of inequality through an intersectional framework. In Section 2, students read about how race, sexuality, and gender have been conceptualized, theorized, and applied to social life, including the ways that sociologists research social inequality. Section 3 describes the impact social inequality has in our lives. By examining institutions and interactions, the text considers how social inequalities operate within these contexts. The final section looks to the future, featuring readings on how to create positive social change. The anthology provides students with a glossary of terms and discussion questions for each reading.

    Featuring scholarly, engaging content, Frameworks of Inequality is well suited for courses in sociology, especially those that explore social inequality, wealth, power, status, and social stratification.

    "This book was stellar in its organization. The lead-ins and introductions were wonderful in their conversational tone whilst maintaining their academic integrity."
