Resisting the Ideological Hegemony of Neoclassicism

I have fallen victim this semester to the ideological hegemony of neoclassicism, and taught my intermediate macroeconomics course--Econ 101b--with very little attention to issues of income distribution. It has been a grow-and-stabilize-the-GDP course almost exclusively.

Enough students are unhappy about this, however, that it looks like I will be adding a reading course on the distribution of income and wealth in America since 1929 to my spring teaching load.

Suggestions for things that we should read? Goldin and Margo, Katz and Murphy, Card and Lemieux, Saez, Gosselin-Moffitt-Gottschalk-Hacker, and what else?
