A study of class inequality in Great Britain; its nature and extent in a modern capitalist society; its roots; the conflicts and tensions, both overt and latent , to which it gives rise; the prospects of change - whether radical and revolutionary or reactionary and repressive - to which shifts in th e1970s in the character and tempo of conflict may point. Anchors a Marxist analysis and interpretatiion of class in empirical fact and, at the same time, dispels the clouds of myth and mystification which the authors argue much conventional sociological cccommentary has surrounded the subject. Includes an Index.
