Description - Status Inequality by George A. de Vos
Four decades of De Vos's work on self, society and status inequality are behind this study of the effects of minority status on individual and group behaviour. De Vos provides the linkages between the social structural factors affecting intergroup relations and the internal states with which these factors interact - a marriage of anthropology, psychology and sociology. This work synthesizes and extends his theoretical work, pointing to the symbolic nature of groups, the experience of ethnicity and of inequality and the impact of both external and internal variables on the sense of self.
