Creating and Contesting Social Inequalities

Contemporary Readings

Carissa M. Froyum, Katrina Bloch, and Tiffany Taylor

Creating and Contesting Social Inequalities: Contemporary Readings offers readings on a variety of topics, with a focus on the "how" of inequality. Rather than structuring the book topically, editors Carissa M. Froyum, Katrina Bloch, and Tiffany Taylor have organized the readings around social processes that reproduce and maintain inequality.

This unique anthology includes social change readings throughout its entirety, rather than segmenting them at the end of the reader. It also features innovative data analysis exercises, reading questions, and social change projects. With its combination of generic processes, intersectionality, full incorporation of disabilities, global perspective, and data analysis exercises, Creating and Contesting Social Inequalities will challenge students to see themselves as agents in a system of inequality rather than passive learners.
