With issues of inequality and wealth at the forefront of public debate, the subject of class has re-emerged as a topic of public attention. In Social Class in the 21st Century, Mike Savage and the team of sociologists responsible for The Great British Class Survey report their definitive findings and draw out a new landscape of class.
In Respectable: The Experience of Class, Lynsey Hanley writes about how class Britain remains as strongly present as it was 50 years ago and skilfully weaves together her personal experiences of leaving her working class childhood for middle class adulthood, with wider observations about social mobility.
This will be a fascinating discussion about how social class continues to affect us all.
