Social Inequality

Australia at the Crossroads

Daphne Habibis and Maggie Walter

  • The only comprehensive Australian book on social inequality
  • Theoretical and empirical content is presented in an engaging and accessible way for students
  • Develops a clear argument about the nature of inequality and difference in Australia which is 'tested' against the available empirical evidence
  • Focuses on inequality, but also identifies the 'political' as a key sphere that shapes the field by considering the role of the State, both as a sphere of inequality in its own right, as well as in relation to the State's role, in mediating, perpetuating or influencing understandings of inequality across the different sites of inequality within Australian society
  • Case studies in each chapter provide examples to aid understanding
  • Contains a glossary of key terms
