Chapter 5 is devoted to this important subject. Viewing society in this context, allows sociologists to understand the foundation of a society; and the motivations / values that underpin its function.

The conditions of economic expansion and apparent affluence in Britain during the 1950s and 60s resulted in two pervasive beliefs: That significant class differences in economic reward and social conditions had been greatly reduced, leading to the idea that class differences were disappearing - 'We're all middle class now.'
