    Chavs: The Demonisation of the Working Class (Owen Jones) is a fantastic book

    The Spirit Level (Wilkinson & Pickett) is also good if you want something on inequality more broadly

    Both are very accessible but still respected academic texts (The Spirit Level is one of my readings this week) which is good if you want something for your PS

    If you want something older which shows how social class relates to political power, try Voters, Parties and Leaders by Jean Blondel.

    Watching the English by Kate Fox is quite good too.

    My lecturer recommended the Owen Jones book so I think that's my best bet. Thank you
