Counter The causes and consequences of social mobility are a central area of study within the social sciences and the differing levels of economic development between ethnic groups is an issue of major concern for policy-makers. Written by leading scholars with a wide range of expertise, this book is the first to provide a comparative analysis of these and related issues within the US and the UK and includes such topics as education, work and employment, political mobilization and social networks.
