The Working Class Majority: America's Best Kept Secret

by

The Working Class Majority: America's Best Kept Secret Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The United States is not a middle class society. Michael Zweig shows that the majority of Americans are actually working class and argues that recognizing this fact is essential if that majority is to achieve political influence and social strength. "Class", Zweig writes, "is primarily a matter of power, not income".

Book News Annotation:

Zweig (economics, State U. of New York-Stony Brook) argues that the US is a working-class rather than middle-class society, and that self- interest is not enough to reap capitalism's benefits. Includes a resource guide.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 181-192) and index.
