Class in British society

Mirror News

In relation to my research on John Honey, I’ve decided I need to read more on the British class system. Joan Beal already told me about the discussion on the subject in VariationList (thanks to which I read John Rickford’s article on class in sociolinguistics, from 1986). Joan also suggested Ivan Reid’s book Social Class Differences in Britain, which I now have open in front of me, but I’d like to know a more general, perhaps historical (?) work on class.

Any suggestions please?

  2. Thanks, Joy, this was just what I was looking for (in addition to a study).
