The notion that class inequality has been steadily diminishing is a myth. In Britain, as in other western capitalist countries, class structures and therefore class divisions are both deeply rooted and pervasive. In other words, and contrary to popular pretence, 'class' is alive and well and flourishing in contemporary society.
The theme of this book, therefore, is class inequality: its nature and extent today; its roots; the conflicts and tensions to which it gives rise, both overt and latent; the prospects of change - radical and revolutionary, or reactionary and repressive - to which recent shifts in the character and tempo of conflict may point. The authors draw on evidence which relates largely to Britain, but the focus is not peculiarly British. Britain is used as a case study - to illustrate and document in detail features which, so the authors argue, are common to and inherent in contemporary capitalism throughout the western world.
