    Abstract:
    Since its origins in the Industrial Revolution, anarchism has observed and criticized a wide swath of inequalities. Likewise, some sociologists have independently developed theoretical understandings of inequality that reflect anarchist interests and sentiments. This paper develops an anarchist-sociological grand theory of domination, offering the ability to systematically analyze real world phenomena, including forms of inequality yet to be identified. This theory is then applied to three major forms of domination: class, gender, and race. Domination is considered a subject worthy of study by both anarchists and sociologists, instead of simply social inequality. But, there are ethical problems with the mere study of domination. Consequently, anarchists have initiated numerous responses aimed at the elimination of domination.
