In recent years there has been growing debate among sociologists about the concept of class and its relevance to the highly industrialised world of the late twentieth century. This book makes available in a single volume all of the key contributions to this debate and takes it a step further with a number of specially commissioned pieces. An editorial introduction which sets the main arguments in context, additional commentary and two alternative conclusions help to make this a unique text for a subject that remains crucial yet highly contentious.

'This book brings together the major contributions to the debate about the relevance of class in late industrial societies and the controversy surrounding class analysis - especially class defined in terms of employment aggregates for the purposes of quantitative research. It also includes a number of specially commissioned pieces written by established writers in the sub-discipline...the collection will be extremely useful for staff and students addressing recent conflicts about class.'
