Social Inequality Across the Generations - The Role of Compensation and Multiplication in Resource Accumulation

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.

Editors: Jani Erola, Professor, Department of Social Research and Elina Kilpi-Jakonen, Senior Research Fellow, Department of Social Research, University of Turku, Finland
