"The book shows how class has not disappeared, but is known and spoken in a myriad of different ways, always working through other categorizations of nation, race, gender and sexuality and across different sites: through popular culture, political rhetoric, economic theory and academic theory. In particular, attention is given to how new forms of personhood are being generated through class, and how what we have come to know and assume to be a 'self' is always a classed formation." "Analysing four processes - of inscription, institutionalization, perspective-taking and exchange relationships - it challenges recent debates on reflexivity, risk, rational-action theory, individualization and mobility, by showing how these are all reliant on fixing some people in place so that others can move."--Jacket." ;
