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. The prevailing assumption is that, in western societies, class inequalities are no longer important in determining political behaviour. In The End of Class Politics? leading scholars from the US, UK and Europe argue that the evidence on which the assumptions about the decline importance of class is based is unfounded. Instead, the book argues that the class basis of political competition has to some degree evolved, but not declined. Furthermore, the social basis of political competition and sweeping claims about the new politics of postindustrial society need to be re-examined.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book repays close reading ... It is a pleasure to see this book and its ongoing contribution to a debate that increasingly reflects the subtleties of our rapidly shifting societies. * Contemporary Sociology *
Evans's collection of essays is an adroit mixture of sophisticated statics with empirical description of the relation between class and party in the advanced industrial counties of Europe and North America. * A.H. Halsey, Times Literary Supplement *
An excellent, rounded introduction from Evans, who argues that much of the debate over class voting is confused by problems of measurement and analysis ... a book for the specialist ... it will have a substantial impact. * Government and Opposition *
