"She offers a fair assessment of the virtues and failings of contemporary sociological thought and its implications for understanding social inequalities ... This book is a very refreshing addition to the literature and it should certainly feature on reading lists on modules addressing current sociological thought and changing social inequalities." Sociology

"Readable and well structured while at the same time intellectually challenging. Bradley's discussion of 'race' and ethnicity ... offers a particularly valuable contribution to current thinking." Work, Employment and Society
