The recent history of the working class is essential to any account of modern Britain: between 1880 and 1950 manual workers and their dependents made up three-quarters of the British population. In this fascinating collection of essays, Ross McKibbin examines the social and political character of the working class, as well as its relationship with the rest of society and the State. He focuses on such subjects as the relationship of work and hobbies, working-class gambling, class and poverty, and unemployment in inter-war Britain. What emerges is a coherent picture of the world in Britain's social classes.'uniformly excellent, and should be read by anybody who is interested in the history, sociology or politics of Britain in the 20th century', London Review of Books'splendid volume of essays . . . McKibbin has written an illuminating work which takes the vitally important step from labour to working-class history', Times Literary Supplement

`uniformly excellent, and should be read by anybody interested in the history, sociology or politics of Britain in the 20th century' London Review of Books `An original and frequently brilliant re-examination of the politics and culture of the working class in the first half of this century.' The Observer `The value of McKibbin's work lies in his intelligent employment of concepts developed by sociologists and psychologists, as well as social historians.' Joseph Melling, University of Exeter, Economic History Review, Volume XLIII, No.4 November 1990 `A major interpretation of the history of the British working class and its relation to politics and the state between 1880 and 1950. Its publication will undoubtedly help others to address themselves to the issues that it has raised'. E.P. Hennock. `this book constitutes an achievement of genuine importance...McKibbin has given us a stimulating collection whose arguments should produce debate and discussion for some time to come.' James E. Cronin, Journal of Social History
