"Class and Skill" links the debates on social class and "classlessness" with concerns about changing levels of skill in the economy. The perennial English obsession with social class is approached from the idea of defining the notion of skill. The prospect of continuing economic crisis poses the problem of creating skills for the future, which the author aims to address practically, using quotations from his research. This study is suitable for teachers, lecturers in education and students of education, politics, sociology, economics and cultural studies.
