Social Inequality Across the Generations

The Role of Compensation and Multiplication in Resource Accumulation

Edited by Jani Erola and Elina Kilpi-Jakonen

Social Inequality Across the Generations provides an innovative perspective on social stratification studies by advancing the theoretical and empirical case for the influence of resource compensation. It examines whether resource compensation is a successful mechanism for social mobility, contrasting it against competing types of resource accumulation such as multiplication. This book is the first to cover extensively the role of compensation in intergenerational attainment – a new and rapidly spreading concept in stratification research.
