Summary
  • "A specter is haunting the long-standing class theory of politics - the specter of the rightist working class. Social conflicts and voting patterns in Western nations indicate a gradual erosion of working-class support for the left, a process that class theory itself cannot adequately explain. Farewell to the Leftist Working Class aims to fill this gap by developing, testing, and confirming an alternative explanation of rightist tendencies among the underprivileged."
  • "The authors challenge the widely held assumption that weakening working-class support for leftist parties indicates first of all a decline in class voting and a breakdown of class politics. Instead, they argue, cultural issues that revolve around individual liberty and maintenance of social order have become much more significant since World War II."
  • "Farewell to the Leftist Working Class reports cutting-edge research into the withering away of working-class support for the left and the welfare state, drawing mostly on survey data collected in Western Europe, the United States, and other Western countries. Although it Is based on large-scale quantitative analyses of survey data, great pains have been taken to safeguard accessibility and to present the material in as reader-friendly a way as possible."--BOOK JACKET
