Class stratification

Class stratification is a form of social stratification in which a society tends to divide into separate classes whose members have different access to resources and power.


  • The prophets ... hurled their "woe be unto you" against those who oppressed and enslaved the poor, those who joined field to field, and those who deflected justice by bribes. These were the typical actions leading to class stratification everywhere in the ancient world, and were everywhere intensified by the development of the city-state (polis).
