This text examines the structure of stratification in the United States, focusing on the way one's class location influences his or her life opportunities.

Beeghley uses three themes to illustrate social stratification: How power influences the distribution of resources in the United States; how social structure influences rates of events; and how social psychological factors influence how individuals act on, and react to, the situations in which they find themselves.
