Social Inequality in Australia: Discourses, Realities and Futures
Publication Date 11 Nov 2008
OverviewThis book provides detailed coverage of the key dimensions of the nature and extent of inequality and difference in Australian society. As well as incorporating arguments about the effects of globalisation on inequality and difference in Australia, it also features arguments about the role of culture in the social reproduction of hierarchy and difference. Arguments about the nature of inequality are 'tested' against empirical evidence, and case studies in each chapter provide examples to aid student understanding.
