Readings in the Swedish Class Structure is a collection of papers that covers the Swedish class structure. The book is comprised of 10 chapters that are organized into three parts; each part presents articles that tackle a concern in the Swedish class system. The text first covers the distribution of economic rewards, which includes ownership and influence in the economy; determination of wage structures in manufacturing industry; and a Marxist analysis of the Swedish class structure. The next part deals with the distribution of opportunities; this part examines the patterns of social mobility and educational reforms and equality. The last part tackles inequality and political processes. The book will be of great use to sociologists, political scientists, anthropologists, and social historians.
