The contributions in this book highlight,
contextualize and analyze different aspects of social inequality. What are the
various cause and effects of inequality? How have these changed over recent
decades? Which social policies might be best able to intervene? Written by
authors from a variety of disciplines and geographical regions, these
contributions provide a rich account of inequality within contemporary society.
The role of the state, the media and the market in exacerbating and alleviating
patterns of equality are all accessed alongside analysis of changing patterns
of exclusion and hierarchy.
