Bringing together the most recent empirical evidence and the latest theoretical debates, this fully revised new edition gets to grips with a broad range of inequalities in people’s lives. Examining social class, gender, ethnicity, disability and migration status, it demonstrates how these play out in relation to education, health, poverty, neighbourhood and housing and how they cumulate across the life course. Richly illustrated with figures and concrete examples showing the distribution of life chances across social groups, the book demonstrates how people’s lives are structured by inequalities across multiple dimensions. Comprehensive topical chapters are framed by an exploration of the meaning and interpretation of inequalities and a discussion highlighting the important intersections between them. With new chapters on disability and international migration, this updated edition continues to provide a wide-ranging but detailed and theoretically sophisticated account of contemporary inequalities that will be invaluable to undergraduate and masters students alike.

Which inequalities characterise today higher education' systems, which one do they produce and which one do they fight? This book answers this three sides question by developing a comprehensive approach to depict and frame inequalities in and by higher education. By doing so, it provides researchers and policies makers with a tool to think and fight inequalities. Drawing on a multilevel and international perspective, this book analyses the inequalities issue at three levels (Access to higher education, Success in higher education and Access to academic careers as an illustration of inequalities in access to the marketplace) by using complementary disciplines and approaches. Besides national histories of higher education and their path dependencies, societal specificities and their understanding of what diversity means and how it can be measured, international pressures to admit common norms, inequalities are today thought in an always more multidimensional, qualitative way. Relying on cases studies, this book takes the reader through the contemporary complexity of higher education inequalities to finally provide him with a conceptual scheme of reading the dimensions weighting on inequalities and think the potential tools to address them.

Quick-fix solutions to health inequalities are unlikely to be found in complex modern societies. Class or socio-economic status, gender, ethnicity and physical location all play their part in determining our chances of maintaining good health and securing good health care. This wide-ranging discussion by community leaders and workers, policy-makers and implementers, epidemiologists, public health researchers, economists, sociologists, an historian and medical professionals addresses how health inequalities arise and provides ways of understanding and resolving them.

In the midst of this macro analysis the authors use pedagogy to bring the micro application alive, e.g. The Human Side and Self and Society so that the students can apply and understand the social problem.

Storming the Millennium

A new politics of change is coming into being across the industrialised world. Active and rebellious, this new politics is redefining radicalism. It encompasses a broad range of issues - sexuality, gender, drugs, roads, ethnicity, cyberspace, democracy, music - and ventures into areas the timid political establishment does its best to avoid. As the new millennium begins, activists are reflecting on their struggles, and journalists and intellectuals are recognising the importance of the new politics. Storming the Millennium is the foremost book to bring a range of these activists and intellectuals together in one volume. The book provides some of the first histories of the movements that are at the core of new politics and grapples with the important political and theoretical issues they raise, through interviews and analyses. Bringing together new and established writers, Storming the Millennium is in two parts. In the first part, there are five analyses of specific movements. Rupa Huq analyses the relationship between 'rave' and dance culture and the British Government's draconian legislation, the Criminal Justice Act. Peter Beresford takes up the story of how disabled people and psychiatric survivors have struggled to ensure they participate in political change. Merl Storr analyses recent shifts in the bisexual movement from resistance to oppression to the recognition of networks of power permeating sexualities. Patrick Field explores attacks on road-building within the context of ecological danger. Finally, Tim Jordan provides the first detailed analysis of an Internet based political organisation, the USA based Electronic Frontier Foundation, and finds both grassroots defence and elite empowerment. The second part of Storming the Millennium explores different ways of analysing the significance of new politics. Sanjay Sharma and Shirin Housee explore a community's response to racist murders in the context of discussions around the importance of identities such as 'black' or 'Asian' to anti-racist struggles. Pam Alldred interviews USA analyst Nancy Fraser, exploring the relationship between redistributive and identity politics. Tim Jordan analyses different definitions of exploitation and liberation, arguing for the left to carry itself forward into a radical politics of many definitions of liberation. Tony Fitzpatrick outlines the often neglected world of 'self-help' social welfare and its relationship to the failing welfare state. Adam Lent explores internal divisions within political movements and argues for novel political identities. Finally, Tessa Bird and Tim Jordan interview Stuart Hall, Doreen Massey and Michael Rusting, exploring the relationship between new politics and the New Left, the value of still calling oneself a socialist and whether class remains the key political framework. Storming the Millennium includes exhilarating stories of resistance and change, alongside complex yet accessible analyses of the nature of current radical politics.
