Social Inequality: Contemporary Theories, Debates, and Models [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 22-11-2005David B. Grusky
This course reviews classical and contemporary approaches to understanding the differential distribution of valued goods and the social processes by which such inequality comes to be seen as legitimate, natural, or desirable. Although egalitarian values are a fundamental feature of postmodernity, these values exist in tension not only with massive departures from perfect equality but also with historic and unprecedented increases, at least in some domains, in the extent of these departures. Moreover, the processes that generate and maintain inequality appear to be changing, as are the consequences of inequality for lifestyles, consumption practices, and life chances. The foregoing changes invite fresh study of the structure of social inequality and how it varies by time and place.
