This volume examines the concept and social phemen of discrimination from ecomic and sociological perspectives. It brings together the work of a wide range of sociologists and ecomists and provides a spectrum of methodological and ideological views on this highly charged topic. The breadth of topics and approaches offered here include classical Marxist ideas on rivalry among entrepreneurs and among ethnic groups to neo-classical supply-side and human capital factors, as well as demand-side factors such as efficiency wage theories and organizational inertia. This work will be of interest to specialists in labor ecomics and sociology. It provides an excellent overview of the relevant issues and current scholarly thought in employment and occupational discrimination.
