The Transformation of American Class Structure, 1960-1980.
Wright, Erik Olin; Martin, Bill
American Journal of Sociology, v93 n1 p1-29 Jul 1987
This study explores the relationship between economic events which occurred during the 1970s and 1980s and the development of a proletarian class structure in the United States. Contrary to theoretical expectations, the data show a decisive acceleration in the growth of the managerial class. Internationalization of business and technological and organizational changes are factors which contributed to this result. (JDH)
