Throughout this text, emphasis has been placed on how our societies define us, regulate our interpersonal relationships, allocate resources, and organize the conduct of our lives. These arrangements often become an integral part of commonly accepted beliefs and socialization practices which differentially benefit or disadvantage particular individuals or groups. The criteria on which they are based have included ascribed status by heritage, socioracial heritage, ethnicity, and gender. Other criteria have included allegiance to particular beliefs or social organizations and specialized education or experience.
