This major new three volume reference collection includes both classic and contemporary papers and covers the main issues of stratification - status, class, occupation, gender, race and ethnicity. Each article represents a distinctive theoretical contribution which sets research agendas in its area. Together, the volumes offer a comprehensive treatment of issues which lie at the heart of social stratification and the modern discipline of sociology.
John Holmwood's selection includes papers covering over 150 years of research which address the changing character of modern society as well as the relationships between issues of employment, welfare, household and the state.
