Mike Savage and Andrew Miles provide a comprehensive intorduction to the working class in Britain in the years after 1840. "The Remaking of the British Working Class" includes a provocative, timely and clear defense of class analysis, and demonstrates how the history of the working class is politically constructed. This study also shows how social mobility and urban change affected working class formation, and illustrates how class and gender interact in mediating social and political change.

Industry Reviews

'Savage and Miles manage to pack in an enormous amount of information and analysis and their book should be required reading for anyone interested in the popular politics of the last 150 years' - Socialist History
