In America's much-touted classless society, the middle
class--decried by some as a mythical construct and heralded by
others as the embodiment of the American dream--has always occupied
a central and controversial position. This book explores the
origins of the new middle classes that emerged in the 20th century,
revealing the relationship of these classes to capitalism,
bureaucracy, and politics. The book is divided into four parts,
addressing: the theoretical problems and historical changes brought
on by the emergence of the new middle classes; status and the
psychology of class; the middle class in America; and the
lifestyles and political orientations of the middle classes in the
