Few themes have been as central to sociology as 'class' and yet class remains a perpetually contested idea. Sociologists disagree not only on how best to define the concept of class but on its general role in social theory and indeed on its continued relevance to the sociological analysis of contemporary society. Some people believe that classes have largely dissolved in contemporary societies; others believe class remains one of the fundamental forms of social inequality and social power. Some see class as a narrow economic phenomenon whilst others adopt an expansive conception that includes cultural dimensions as well as economic conditions. This 2005 book explores the theoretical foundations of six major perspectives of class with each chapter written by an expert in the field. It concludes with a conceptual map of these alternative approaches by posing the question: 'If class is the answer, what is the question?'

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a very useful book on the sociology of class. ... textbook-like coverage ... excellent introductory and concluding chapters ...' Anthropological Science
"I found this book intellectually engaging. Approaches to Class Analysis brings together recent theorists of class analysis from different theoretical perspectives, each of whom help unpack economical, social and cultural processes that allow us to understand what classes are and whether they have potential for mobilization. It should be of interest to students of sociology. In fact, I would consider it as a valuable addition to a graduate course in social inequality and stratification." --Reza Nakhaie, University of Windsor, Canadian Journal of Sociology Online
