Habits of Inequality

Lorne Tepperman and Nina Gheihman

  • Timely. The rise of the global Occupy movement demonstrates that now more than ever people are interested in social inequality issues and their associated social problems.
  • Broad approach. The authors draw fascinating connections across large-scale social problems, such as racism, gender discrimination, and economic inequality.
  • Persuasive theory. Offers a thought-provoking argument for the pervasiveness of inequality around the world.
  • Accessibly written. A lively, highly readable narrative will appeal to the general reader without a sociology background.
  • Canadian content. Social inequality in Canada is compared on an international scale, using both hard and soft measures.
  • Expert author. Lorne Tepperman has authored over a dozen books on sociology, including The Sense of Sociability, hailed as a "sweeping, ambitious book" (Literary Review of Canada).
  • Entertaining examples. From the royal wedding to the popular documentary Seven Up!, engaging examples remind us that we are regularly exposed to social inequalities in our everyday lives.
