What unites the topics is not a preoccupation with a common object of explanation, but rather a common explanatory factor: class.

It is a great way to introduce students in sociology and at the same time address vital contemporary issues. Scholars working on social stratification, mobility, inequalities, gender, race will take this work as their point of departure for the next decade.' Ivan Szelenyi, University of California, Los Angeles
'In recent years it has become fashionable to question the usefulness of class analysis. Class Counts is Erik Wright's clear and convincing answer to the skeptics.
