Divisions and Solidarities by Alison MacEwen Scott
Book DescriptionTraditionally, class analysis has exaggerated the role of economic differentiation, particularly that of the informal economy, and has underestimated the degree of common consciousness amongst the 'labouring class'. In Divisions and Solidarities, Alison MacEwen Scott examines class analysis and the inter-relationship between gender and class which creates a shared interest between men and women in some contexts and a divergence of interest in others. Using case studies of the urban population in Latin America, she presents a major critique of existing class theories and presents a new theoretical treatment on class formation, the orthodoxy of the informal economy, class consciousness and political participation.

Divisions and Solidarities, Hardback (December 1994)
The author defends the concept of class by expanding it to encompass power, status, mobility and consumption. She does this through a critique of theories of urban employment and class structure, using case study material from Peru to examine and test theories of interest to social scientists.
