Latest SUP book puts class back on the agenda

Class as a concept has taken a back seat in the debate but also as an academic subject, says Magnus Nilsson, from Malmö University. He hopes to bring class back to the agenda, but also widen the concept and bring it up to date, with the new anthology Working-Class Literature(s): Historical and International Perspectives, co-edited with John Lennon (University of South Florida) and published by Stockholm University Press.
