The Hidden Injuries of Class

by

The Hidden Injuries of Class Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The authors conclude that in the games of hierarchical respect, no class can emerge the victor; and that true egalitarianism can be achieved only by rediscovering diverse concepts of human dignity. Examining personal feelings in terms of a totality of human relations, and looking beyond the struggle for economic survival, The Hidden Injuries of Classtakes an important step forward in the sociological critique of everyday life.

Synopsis:
