About the book:

Erik Olin Wrights Classes was hailed on publication, by the American Journal of Sociology, as almost certain to be the most important book on social classes of the decade. Wright presented a bold attemptthrough the subtle use of the tools of analytical Marxismto resolve some of the long-standing problems in contemporary class theory.

The Debate on Classes brings together major critics of Wrights work to assess the adequacy of his theory. From differing perspectives, they deploy a range of empirical datafrom studies undertaken in a number of countriesand they address questions as varied as the concept of contradictory class locations, the continuing coherence of Marxist approaches to class, the relation between stratification and social development, as well as the contentious roles of gender and ethnicity in generating inequality, and the central problem of the import of consciousness and concrete political activity on class composition.

Also included are Wrights own spirited responses and reformulations in the light of these criticisms, thereby presenting the reader with an open, scholarly discussion in which intellectual collaboration develops an understanding of the impact of class on the wider terrain of culture and politics.
