Studies in Class Structure

Excerpt

Of the six studies which make up this volume, four have been published previously--two in English and two in French. (I) 'Introductory' is new. (II) 'The Influence of Technological Changes on the Development of Class Structure in the Western World' appeared in French in the Belgian periodical Industrie in April, 1953. It has not been published until now in English. (III) 'The Social Structure of England' appeared in two articles in History To-day in February and March, 1951, but has been revised for publication in this volume. (IV) 'The Conception of the Middle Classes' was originally read as a paper at the Anglo-French Historical Congress held at All Souls College, Oxford, in September, 1949, and was subsequently printed in the British Journal of Sociology in December, 1950. (V) 'Élites in British Society' was originally written as a contribution to a projected volume, to be published in French, dealing with the nature of élites in various European societies; but through a chapter of accidents this volume has not yet appeared, and the essay is now published for the first time. Finally, (VI) 'British Class Structure in 1951' was published in French in Cahiers Internationaux de Sociologie in its double issue of January to June, 1954, but is here published for the first time in English. To the editors of the periodicals concerned I make due acknowledgement for their consent to my use of these articles, which were from the first intended to form parts of a collected volume of studies.
