More Description


The rise of the English middle class from the mid-19th century onwards is one of the great untold stories of social history. Many of the most profound cultural changes of the 20th century - the rise of concepts like professionalism, privacy, respectability, consumerism, the centrality of home - were driven by the inexorable expansion of the suburban middle class. The original BBC2 series (broadcast in early 2001) combined interviews from over 50 people telling their own stories with comment and analysis by prominent historians and sociologists. The book shares its structure but explores the subject in much greater depth.
