In Search of the Subject of Change
Latin American Studies
Great books enable us to reflect on the subject matter under study and lead to the reading of others that expand our understanding and deepen our knowledge. They also make us think about the state of our profession and the way it has been shaped by open debates. More important, great works make us revisit issues and theories studied in the recent past and take a fresh look at topics we thought we understood. This is what the Dominican-born sociologist Carlos Julio Báez Evertsz delivers in his monumental Desigualdad y clases sociales, an interesting, timely, and comprehensive critique of theories of social classes.
