"...the volume contributes to our understanding of current transformations of social inequalities in different parts of the world. More precisely, the volume has two important strengths: it reveals, first, the regional, national and local differences in inequality patterns and globaliation impacts and, second, it demonstrates the importance of political choices for higher and lower levels of social inequalities." - Christian Suter, International Sociology Review of Books
