The End of Class Politics? Class Voting in Comparative Context

Synopsis

The last few decades has seen a prolonged debate over the nature and importance of social class as a basis for ideology, class voting and class politics. In this book, leading scholars argue that the class basis of political competition has to some degree evolved, but not declined. Furthermore, the sweeping claims about the new politics of postindustrial society need to be re-examined.
