I donâ€™t understand this Sociology question and need help to study.
- Compare and contrast the three types of stratification systems.
- Though caste and class characteristics are discussed as if they are dichotomous, the fact is that many cultures exhibit a mixture of caste and class attributes – that is, many cultures are open in some ways but also exhibit pressures that complicate movement within the social stratification system. Discuss how this mixture of class and caste attributes plays out in the United States.
- What is the status attainment process and what factors are the most important in that process in a more-nearly class system such as the United States?
- Do you believe social mobility – especially upward social mobility – is easier or harder now in the United States than for your parents or grand parents? Explain your answer.
