Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Exploring Inequality, Second Edition!

In Exploring Inequality: A Sociological Approach, author Jenny M. Stuber examines the socially constructed nature of our identities, the processes by which we acquire them, prejudice and privilege, and the unequal outcomes they produce within institutions. By employing both micro-level and macro-level perspectives, as well as integrating intersectional analysis in every chapter, this text provides a solid and effective framework for understanding social diversity and inequality.

The updated Second Edition features a strong introductory chapter reviewing key theories and concepts, real-world examples, social problems and their solutions, and better visuals to help students gain a comprehensive understanding of social inequality.


We gratefully acknowledge Jenny M. Stuber for writing an excellent text. Special thanks are also due to Integra for developing the resources on this site.
