"An important approach to social inequality."--M. M. Denny, "Choice
From the Inside Flap
"Durable Inquality solidifies Charles Tilly's reputation as one of the world's most creative social scientists. It is a work of considerable theoretical scope and imagination. Tilly's original framework clearly reveals and thoroughly explains the similar social processes that create different forms of social inequality."--William Julius Wilson, author of The Truly Disadvantaged"A highly sophisticated yet extremely accessible reconstruction of a core sociological problem. . . . Durable Inequality is one of those exceptional books that provides both a compelling rereading of familiar issues and an inspiring vision for future research."--Elisabeth S. Clemens, author of The People's Lobby "In a refreshing book characterized by deep insight into social structure and relations and displaying a rich historical sweep, Tilly has constructed a major challenge to contemporary individualistic interpretations of persistent economic inequality."--Richard A. Easterlin, author of Growth Triumphant "Clearly the work of a master. . . . The book provides a new and rigorous understanding of one of the key facts of social life."--Bruce G. Carruthers, author of City of Capital "The insights in this book offer the opportunity to revitalize the study of social stratification with a version of organizational theory, and reconnect both to political sociology."--Neil Fligstein, author of The Transformation of Corporate Control See all Product description
