This course analyzes the social basis upon which groups and people have been ranked based on gender, nationality, religion, class, and race. It delineates the implication of this ranking as it relates directly to dominant and dominated groups? access to wealth, power, prestige, and equal opportunity. In its analysis of the social basis for social stratification in the United States and the world, this course examines globalization, capitalism, and the new and/or emerging forms of hierarchical relationships, which are unfolding within and between nation-states that are competing in the interstate system.
