This is a text on the political sociology of Britain under Thatcher and an examination of the social and political effects of Thatcherism during the 1980s. It incorporates and reflects on statistical data, generated by the authors, about the nature of the public response to differing manifestations of Thatcherism (cuts in the welfare state, etc) and relates these responses to voting behaviour. Secondly, it uses this information to reflect upon core questions in political sociology - namely, what are the differing effects of class and occupation on voting behaviour. The demise of class as a factor in General Elections has been much trumpeted - this book suggests that such conclusions are premature.
