Imagining the Middle Class by Dror Wahrman

Book Description

Why and how did the British people come to see themselves as living in a society centred around a middle class? The answer provided by Professor Wahrman challenges most prevalent historical narratives: the key to understanding changes in conceptualisations of society, the author argues, lies not in underlying transformations of social structure - in this case industrialisation, which supposedly created and empowered the middle class - but rather in changing political configurations. Firmly grounded in a close reading of an extensive array of sources, and supported by comparative perspectives on France and America, the book offers a nuanced model for the interplay between social reality, politics, and the languages of class.

Books By Author Dror Wahrman

Invisible Hands by Dror Wahrman Invisible Hands, Hardback (June 2015)

Why is the world orderly, and how does order occur? Humans inhabit many systems - natural, social, political, economic, cognitive, and others - with seemingly obscure origins. In this book, the authors trace the versatile language of self-organization in the eighteenth-century West.

Mr. Collier's Letter Racks by Dror Wahrman Mr. Collier's Letter Racks, Hardback (November 2012)

Uncovers an artistic puzzle in the illusionist paintings by Edward Collier, a Dutch-British still-life painter who moved to London at the end of the seventeenth century and encoded a sophisticated critique of the information revolution that ushered in the modern information age.

Making of the Modern Self by Dror Wahrman Making of the Modern Self, Paperback (January 2007)

Towards the end of the eighteenth century, a radical change occurred in notions of self and personal identity. This book explores the phenomenon and its causes and offers a fresh interpretation of this turning point in Western history and its consequences.

Age of Cultural Revolutions by Dror Wahrman Age of Cultural Revolutions, Paperback (January 2002)

Explores a key period in the making of the modern West. Although the notion of 'dual revolutions,' economic in Britain and political in France, has been vigorously challenged, this book finds that 'revolutionary' is an apt description of the important cultural transformations that took place in both France and Britain at the onset of modernity.
