Class Analysis and Social Transformation

Front Cover
Open University, 2000 - Social Science - 185 pages
Academic discussions about social class tend to be increasingly specialized and have found it difficult to unpack processes of cultural as well as social change. This book breathes new life into class analysis by showing how contemporary social and cultural transformations are related to the restructuring of class relations. Using the British experience as a case study, Mike Savage gives a definitive account of debates on class and finds evidence of both the breaking down and persistence of class divisions. He employers a variety of disciplinary perspectives to provide a comprehensive account of the main features of contemporary social change.
