|Abstract:||The first chapter of my book Categorically Unequal, which Lamont, Beljean, and Clair specifically cite in their article, was entitled “How Stratification Works” and in it I sought to sketch out a simple theoretical framework to explain how inequality was produced, one that bridged the micro- and macro-levels of analysis. At the micro-level I drew heavily on the work of Susan Fiske (2003) and her stereotype content model (Fiske et al. 2002) whereas at the macro-level I drew heavily on the work of Charles Tilly (1998) and his theory of durable inequality. At the time I was writing in 2006, I was acutely aware that my synthesis elided a sizeable conceptual gap by failing to elucidate how categorical processes of stratification at the micro-level translated into categorical processes of inequality at the macro-level.|
