Academic sociologists, politicians, journalists, and other writers for the past decade have been unable to agree on the relevance of social class is it an outmoded relic of the now-departed "modern age," or does it persist, its entrenched inequalities continuing to exert power over the shape of people's lives? Savage (sociology, U. of Manchester, UK) takes stock of the dispute and argues for a recasting of class analysis in ways that demonstrate its continuing relevance as a means of understanding contemporary social change. He uses the British experience as a case study. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Review:

"This is a thorough, carefully argued and well written attempt to review and reformulate class analysis in a way which provides both a valuable contribution to contemporary intellectual debates on class as well as a comprehensive and accessible overview of the field for undergraduate and post graduate students." - The British Journal of Sociology
