Changing Classes
Stratification and Mobility in Post-Industrial Societies

Edited by:

August 1993 | 272 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This book makes a significant contribution towards understanding the new class structures of post-industrial societies and the changing processes of social stratification and mobility.

Drawing together comparative research on the dynamics of social stratification in a number of key western societies, the authors develop a framework for the analysis of post-industrial class formation. They illustrate the significance of the relations between the welfare state and the household, and the critical interface between gender and class. Case studies of the USA, the UK, Canada, Germany, Norway and Sweden examine the differing application of these ideas in individual welfare states.

`The evidence accumulated is valuable.... This collection is very useful for its comparative data on occupational mobility and because it refutes the proposition that there exists currently a large, homogeneous and permanently trapped new servant class in advanced capitalist societies' - International Journal of Urban and Regional Research
