Class, Politics, and the Decline of Deference in England, 1968-2000

Florence Sutcliffe-Braithwaite

The Past and Present Book Series

  • Provides the first study of "ordinary" people's class identities and narratives of social change in late twentieth-century England
  • Challenges the traditional narrative that class began to leave politics in the late twentieth century
  • Uses the study of languages of class as a lens through which to examine a highly significant cultural change: the decline of deference
  • Explores the ways in which politics was influenced by social and cultural change
  • Uses self-narratives rather than cultural representations to represent class distinctions
