Michael Sacks is a Professor in the Department of Sociology. He received a B.A. from Queens College, CUNY in 1969 and a PhD in sociology from the University of Michigan in 1974. Specializing for many decades in the study of Soviet society, his books include Women’s Work in Soviet Russia: Continuity in the Midst of Change (Praeger 1976), Work and Equality in Soviet Society: The Division of Labor by Age, Gender and Nationality (Praeger 1982) and a coedited volume entitled, Understanding Soviet Society (Allen & Unwin 1988).
More recently his research has shifted to the study of inequality within and between cities and suburbs of the United States. This has led to a focus on the changes in the Hartford and Springfield, Massachusetts Metropolitan Areas, based on data from the censuses of 1980, 1990 and 2000.
