New Book on Social Classes and Stratification

Dynamic of Class and Stratification in Poland (2018), CEU Press, is written by a team of authors from the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology, Polish Academy of Sciences, including Irina Tomescu-Dubrow, Kazimierz M. Slomczynski, Henryk Domański, Joshua Kjerulf Dubrow, Zbigniew Sawiński, and Dariusz Przybysz. This book offers the rare comprehensive study of important changes to class and inequality in Poland, from state socialism to the current times. The core argument is that, even during extreme societal transformations, key features of social life have long-lasting, stratifying effects.

A significant part of the analyzes presented in the book is based on the POLPAN data.
