Part of the Cambridge Studies in Stratification Economics: Economics and Social Identity series

Description

This extensive and comprehensive book tracks persistent racial disparities in the US across multiple regimes of structural racism.

It begins with an examination of the economics of racial identity, mechanisms of stratification, and regimes of structural racism.

It analyzes trends in racial inequality in education and changes in family structure since the demise of Jim Crow.

The book also examines generational trends in income, wealth, and employment for families and individuals, by race, gender, and national region.

It explores economic differences among African Americans, by region, ethnicity, nativity, gender, and racial identity.

Finally, the book provides a theoretical analysis of structural racism, productivity, and wages, with a special focus on the role of managers and instrumental discrimination inside the firm.

The book concludes with an investigation of instrumental discrimination, hate crimes, the criminal legal system, and the impact of mass incarceration on family structure and economic inequality.
