By stratification we mean inequality, as it manifests itself in different social classes, castes, race or ethnic groups, the sexes. That inequality lies not only in the differential wealth, power, and influence of these social groups, but also in their contrasting life experiences and perceptions. The readings include both classic and contemporary statements. The questions discussed include: Who gets what and why? What are the psychological consequences of mobility? How is inequality manifested in work organizations? Is the family cause or consequence of stratification?
