This new edition of Tom Bottomore's text has been revised, updated and substantially enlarged. The book offers an introduction to the study of social class in modern societies. Features new to this edition are that it examines the profound economic and social changes that have taken place in the major industrial countries since the 1950s; that it takes into account the dramatic upheavals in Eastern Europe with the failure of totalitarian socialism; that it analyzes the impact of these changes on class structure and class relations, considering their cultural and political implications in relation to the growth of new social movements; and that it discusses the various theories of class and the revisions of them that have been undertaken in recent times.
