Equality, Prestige, and Controlled Mobility in the Academic Hierarchy.
Lang, Dwight
American Journal of Education, v95 n3 p441-67 May 1987
Analyzes a nationwide graduate student survey to examine the influence of social class, sex, race, undergraduate achievement, and rank of undergraduate institution attended on rank or prestige of their graduate school. The results represent a contradictory picture of stratification in the academic hierarchy and reflect specific mechanisms that attempt to control mobility in the social system. (KH)
