Sinopsis

When this book was first published in 2011 it opened up the discussion on class in Britain. Then, in the public debate after the riots that happened in the summer of that year, Owen Jones' thesis was proved right - the working class were the scapegoats for everything that was wrong with Britain.u003cbru003e This new edition includes a new chapter, reflecting on the overwhelming response to the book and the situation in Britain today.u003cbru003e 'A passionate and well-documented denunciation of the upper-class contempt for the proles that has recently become so visible in the British class system.' Eric Hobsbawm, Guardianu003cbru003e 'A bold attempt to rewind political orthodoxies; to reintroduce class as a political variable ... It moves in and out of postwar British history with great agility, weaving together complex questions of class, culture and identity with a lightness of touch. Jones torches the political class to great effect.' Jon Cruddas, Independent (Book of the Week)u003cbru003e 'It is a timely book. The white working class seems to be the one group in society that it is still acceptable to sneer at, ridicule, even incite hatred against ... Forensically ... Jones seeks to explain how, thanks to politics, the working class has shifted from being regarded as 'the salt of the earth to the scum of the earth.'' Carol Midgley, Times (Book of the Week)
