Social stratification and inequality : class conflict in historical, comparative, and global perspective

Harold Kerbo

This revised edition aims to provide a comprehensive exploration of the economic and social divisions in human societies. The book takes a global perspective and includes detailed information on stratification around the world, addressing the ways in which governments, corporations and workers cope with milestone changes such as greater European unification and an increased US economic presence. Extensive comparative information, as well as an overview of how, historically, social statification has changed and evolved, gives readers a global perspective on class conflict.
