Society consists of sharply divided people with different lives and distinct identities. Written by leading sociologists, the new edition covers a range of social inequalities, with new chapters on work, social identity and global social divisions. It continues to be an invaluable, up-to-date introduction for social science students.

Geoff Payne, a former British Sociological Association President and Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences, teaches Social Divisions, and Research Methods, at Newcastle University, UK. Joint winner of the 2012 BSA/HEA National Award for Excellence in Teaching Sociology, he has worked in England and Scotland, and writes on social mobility.
