Mike Savage and Andrew Miles provide a comprehensive introduction to the working class in Britain in the years after 1840. This textbook: includes a defence of class analysis; shows how social mobility and urban change affected working class formation; demonstrates how the history of the working class is politically reconstructed; and shows how class and gender interact in mediating social and political change. Mike Savage is also the author of "Urban Sociology, Capitalism and Modernity", with Alan Ward (Macmillan, 1993); "Property, Bureaucracy and Culture: Middle Class Formation in Contemporary Britain" (Routledge, 1992); "Gender and Bureaucracy" (Blackwell, 1992) and others. Andrew Miles is also the author of "Building European Society: Occupational and Social Mobility in Europe, 1840-1940" (MUP, 1993).
