Divided Societies Summary


Divided Societies: Class Struggle in Contemporary Capitalism by Ralph Miliband

In the 19th and early 20th centuries the question of the conflict between the classes was regarded by thinkers of the Left and the Right as a central factor in the political debate. In recent years the idea of a class struggle has become more marginalized, but in this book the author argues for its continued relevance and centrality in today's Western societies and brings new insights to such subjects of perennial controversy as the role of class in a democracy, the methods used by political elites to retain power, and the strains placed on the class system by pressure from below and feminism. The work is intended for students (undergraduates, postgraduates) and teachers of politics, sociology, economics, and international relations, general readers, political journalists and commentators.
