Erik Olin Wright's Classes was hailed on publication, by the American Journal of Sociology, as qalmost certain to be the most important book on social classesq of the decade. Wright presented a bold attempta€”through the subtle use of the tools of analytical Marxisma€”to resolve some of the long-standing problems in contemporary class theory. The Debate on Classes brings together major critics of Wright's work to assess the adequacy of his theory. From differing perspectives, they deploy a range of empirical dataa€”from studies undertaken in a number of countriesa€”and they address questions as varied as the concept of qcontradictory class locations, q 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 qconsciousnessq and concrete political activity on class composition. Also included are Wright's 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.Erik Olin Wrighta#39;s Classes was hailed on publication, by the American Journal of Sociology, as aquot;almost certain to be the most important book on social classesaquot; of the decade.
