Changing Classes
Stratification and Mobility in Post-Industrial Societies

Edited by:


October 1993 | 272 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Has the onset of post-industrial societies in any way changed or altered class structures? How have social stratification and social mobility changed in light of new post-industrial societies? Drawing together comparative research on the dynamics of social stratification in a number of key advanced societies, the contributors to this impressive volume develop a framework for the analysis of post-industrial class formation. They illustrate the significance of relations between the welfare state and the household and the critical interface between gender and class. Case studies of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Norway, and Sweden explore the differing application of these ideas in individual welfare states. "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 the advanced capitalist societies." --International Journal of Urban and Regional Research
