Description: A unique multidimensional view of the relationship between the state, society, and oppression Designed to help students analyze and understand political developments in the world around them, this unique text covers a wide array of political sociology concepts and theoretical perspectives. The book's proposed multidimensional view emphasizes the interplay between power, inequality, multiple oppressions, and the state. Blending elements of today's prevalent power structure theories, this framework provides students with a unique focus on the structure of power and inequality in society today. Features: A critical analysis of commonly ignored theoretical perspectives, including anarchist theory, queer theory, and post-structuralism, provides an interdisciplinary perspective. Unique multidimensional topics include class-based, racialized, and gendered state policies and practices in Chapter 7, and paths of resistance, challenge, and subversion, particularly social movements, in Chapter 6. Chapter-ending critical thinking and discussion questions ask students to apply the chapter's conceptual frameworks and concepts to contemporary issues or current events. Charts and diagrams throughout the book help students process conceptual ideas, data, and a wide range of perspectives.
