New Social Mobility : How the Politicians Got It Wrong (Hardcover) (Geoff Payne)
About this item
Despite being a hotly debated topic, social mobility remains one of the most misunderstood processes of our time. In this accessible and engaging book, leading mobility analyst Geoff Payne draws on the latest sociological evidence to demonstrate how our politicians have failed to grasp the ways in which mobility works. The New Social Mobility argues that we must consider the wider dimensions of mobility and life chances—notably the workings of the labor market—to assess more accurately the causes and consequences of mobility as both social and political processes. Bringing together a range of literature and research, Payne covers key themes of mobility analysis and offers a critical and original approach to social mobility. This comprehensive, important book will challenge the well-established opinions of politicians, pressure groups, the press, scholars, and the public alike.
