During the course of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, there has been an enormous increase in wealth and income inequality. This series examines the nature, extent, and sources of class divisions and social inequality in the United States, Europe and other societies around the world, focusing on the unequal distribution of wealth and income over the past several decades.

Providing an analysis of the widening gap in wealth and income arising from class, racial, and gender inequalities that are the outcome of exploitative social relations, this series examines the class basis of inequality, in particular the exploitation of wage-labor by capital, which prevails in contemporary capitalist society. Focusing on the polarization of classes through the ever-widening gap in wealth and income, the series explores the class dynamics of social inequality stemming from the disparity in income and wealth, which has led to an uneven and unequal distribution that has reached unprecedented levels in recent history. In addressing these issues, the volumes in this series make an important contribution to an analysis and understanding of this urgent societal problem that we confront in the early twenty-first century.
