Summary "This succinct introductory text argues that class remains a key concept in sociology. The author examines the classic contributions of Marx and Weber and the recent works of Wright and Goldthorpe. The book provides students with an accessible review of class operationalization, class structure, social mobility, inequality, politics and classlessness in both Britain and the USA."--Jacket
