about

This book puts to the test the prominent claim that social class has declined in importance in an era of affluence, choice and the waning of tradition. Arguing against this view, this study vividly uncovers the multiple ways in which class stubbornly persists.
WILL ATKINSON is a Researcher in the Department of Sociology at the University of Bristol, UK. He has published in a variety of journals on class, social change and social theory.
