Description

Do we live in a classless society? Is America the model of such a society? How does class influence our political beliefs or dictate our social identity? Social Class in America and Britain is the first introductory textbook to combine a clear, comparative study of social class with the latest research. Addressing all the current debates about the demise of social class in Britain and the US, it reflects topical concerns and demonstrates the continued importance of class in the shaping of people's lives, and their socio-political attitudes and behaviour.
