About this title


Based on numerous qualitative interviews, this cutting edge book investigates how Hong Kong's economic structure and neoliberal policies have contributed to class inequality in China's global city. Inspired by Bourdieu's approach to class, the author examines class stratification in education, works, and political attitudes and argues that the lack of explicit class identifications among the people does not imply irrelevance of class. Relying upon empirical field data to question the applicability of the reflexive modernization theory, the text debates whether individualization makes class a redundant concept in advanced capitalist societies.

About the Author:

Chun Wing Lee is Lecturer at Hong Kong Community College, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China. He obtained his PhD in Sociology from the University of Manchester, UK. His research interests include class analysis, social movement, and the political/sociological aspects of sports.
