Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter we will look at the work of three British sociologists who have made major contributions to class theory: Lockwood, Parkin, and Giddens. Each of these writers come to conclusions we would describe as ‘neo-Weberian’, and our exposition will extend the critique of the Weberian approach which we outlined in the previous chapter. We have not attempted in this chapter to provide a comprehensive summary of contemporary sociological approaches to class, as this can already be found elsewhere.1
