A Sense of Inequality, Paperback / softback Book

A Sense of Inequality Paperback / softback

Part of the Transforming Capitalism series



We have a detailed picture of how inequality impacts people's lives, but a much weaker sense of how people perceive, interpret and understand issues of inequality.

What shapes people's everyday understandings of inequality?

How are understandings of inequality located in everyday concerns, moral values and principles of justice?This book considers what provokes everyday 'views' or framings of inequality.

It examines how different approaches can help us understand this process, drawing on a range of literatures, including social attitudes and perceptions research, class identities and neoliberalism, theories of the psychosocial, affect and the abject, social constructionism, social movements research, and pragmatism.

The book examines how troubling social situations come to be regarded as inequalities, explores how they come to be understood as 'class', 'gender', 'racial' or other kinds of inequality, and considers how such inequalities come to be seen as susceptible to intervention and change.
