Class: A Graphic Guide brings together insights from sociologists Laura Harvey and Sarah Leaney with brilliant drawings from Hove-based illustrator Danny Noble, winner of the 2020 Comedy Women In Print Award.
Conversations about class are as relevant today as ever before. The new book delves into different aspects of this eternally fascinating - and often contentious - aspect of British life. What can class tell us about gentrification, precarious work, the role of elites in society, or access to education? How have thinkers explored class in the past, and how does it affect us today? How does class inform activism and change?
From the publishers of the bestselling Queer: A Graphic History, the new book challenges simplistic and prejudicial ideas about working-class people, discusses colonial roots of class systems, and looks at how class intersects with race, sexuality, gender, disability and age.
