Class, Culture and Social Change challenges the notion of the "death of the working class." The author examines a number of key issues for working-class studies: the idea of the "death" of class; the importance of working-class writing; the significance of place and space for understanding working-class identity; and the centrality of work in working-class lives. Drawing on the work of Raymond Williams, Valentin Volosinov, Mikhail Bakhtin, and others, the book seeks to revive ways for thinking about working-class identity and experience.
