SOCI 412: Social Stratification: Home

What is social stratification?

According to Oxford Bibliographies, "social stratification is the allocation of individuals and groups according to various social hierarchies of differing power, status, or prestige." The social stratification entry in Oxford Bibliographies provides brief descriptions and lists of resources on many aspects of social stratification - from classic works by major theorists, like Marx, Weber and Durkheim to considerations of social capital and global inequality. Listed resources have the "find at UNC" button to help you get access to the full-text and various ways to save a citation for the resource.
