Summary The concept of class and its continuing relevance in the late twentieth century world has been the subject of fierce debate amongst sociologists and the wider community in recent years. The death of class and the advent of the classless society have at various times been proclaimed and denied with equal vigour. Conflicts about Class presents in one volume the current arguments surrounding class analysis. Drawing contributions from key sociological researchers, the debate is advanced through a number of specially commissioned pieces which provide both a wide-ranging coverage of topics and a unique international perspective. An editorial introduction sets the main arguments in context. An additional commentary and two alternative conclusions help to make this an invaluable resource for all researchers and academics who have an interest in class analysis.
