The Rise of Professional Society: England since 1880

Synopsis

This long awaited sequel to The Origins of Modern English Society explores the rise of 'the forgotten middle class' to show a new principle of social organization. The Rise of Professional Society lays out a stimulating and controversial framework for the study of British society, challenging accepted paradigms based on class analysis. Perkins argues that the non-capitalist 'professional class' represents a new principle of social organization based on trained expertise and meritocracy, a 'forgotten middle class' conveniently overlooked by classical social theorists.Students of British history will find this an interesting and enlightening addition to their degree course studies.
