0 Reviews
First published in 1958, this study of British clerical workers--their aspirations, views of themselves, and relationships to the manual worker and Trade Union movement--is a pioneering analysis of a social class. Lockwood documents how the development of class consciousness and trade unionism among clerical workers has reflected changes in their economic position, working relationships, and social status. This revised edition includes a substantial new introduction that brings Lockwood's research completely up to date.
