The Rise of Professional Society : England Since 1880, Paperback / softback Book

The Rise of Professional Society : England Since 1880 Paperback / softback

Description

The Rise of Professional Society lays out a stimulating and controversial framework for the study of British society, challenging accepted paradigms based on class analysis.

Perkins argues that the non-capitalist "professional class" represents a new principle of social organization based on trained expertise and meritocracy, a "forgotten middle class" conveniently overlooked by classical social theorists.
