Social Stratification and Inequality. How we measure 'reads'.

Kerbo is clearly biased, however he does present different and conflicting theories, and criticisms of said theories, to every issue explored in the book - and there's a LOT packed in. I think he did a very good job of attempting to tackle so much and focus on areas with the most study done on them.

For all of those people interested in income and wealth inequality, this is a great source for facts and research to back up your arguments. When I visited the Occupy Houston protests a few years ago, for example, I found that this was the type of stuff everyone was talking about, yet few people had actual research to support their arguments. I highly recommend this book. I read it for a graduate-level sociology seminar. It gathers a great deal of important research on the topic of inequality and presents it in a very well-organized manner.

I had to purchase this book for class and it's become one of my favorite textbooks thus far. Kerbo is clearly biased, however he does present different and conflicting theories, and criticisms of said theories, to every issue explored in the book - and there's a LOT packed in. I think he did a very good job of attempting to tackle so much and focus on areas with the most study done on them. He also makes it clear that more research needs to be done as we are far from finding all the answers.

As for readability, there are a few chapters that are extremely dry - lots of numeral figures to illustrate his points. However, the entire book is extremely eye-opening and there are many useful graphs and charts to help present the data.

Had to buy it for a college course. A little difficult to read. Isn't put together well but luckily I had a great professor

It was in the suggested alternatives section when I searched for the 8th edition - didn't realize why it was so cheap until it arrived. The one I need is coming and I'm sure this is a great book for the price - too bad I paid double for a similar book (and thanks college and bookmakers for getting all of our money out of us each year!)

The look at world history and the ramifications it has on the future or at least the possibility of redundancy is very useful in plotting a course individually and for diffusion among the populace. you get kinda of a feel that the author has been traumatized by what he has seen but yet fades back to reality enough to keep it real as long as you the reader can stay objective. All in all for the objective sociologist a very good and modern perspective.

The book is good to read if you need to rent it. The Front cover is ripped a lot already. But the pages look good. I just received it today.
