Contents/synopsis: This is a thorough account of the major theory of class, including the work of Poulantzas, Carchedi and Olin Wright. It also presents a devastating critique of their attempts to differentiate social/occupational classes according to a Marxist theoretical scheme based on the relations of production. It covers the issues that have impinged on these debates-the divorce of ownership and control, control of the enterprise, industrial democracy, patterns of investment-in a detailed and empirical way which makes available much up-to-date evidence. The book also provides an account of classes in modern capitalism, which is relevant and useful for the socialist project of changing the class structure. It gives an extended analysis of the economic class structure of modern British capitalism and the opportunities and problems for socialism associated with that structure. It also looks specifically at the social and political aspects of 'class' in Britain since the war. The last chapter examines how class relations and politics operated during the period of Thatcherism and the possibility of a revival in the fortunes of socialism
