Bibliography and Sources
Harriet Bradley is Professor of Women's Employment at the University of the West of England and Professor Emerita of Sociology at the University of Bristol.
"Bradley successfully combines political critique and trenchant
scholarship in this up-to-the minute revision of her now classic
text. Her focus is firmly on increasing inequality and
polarization, in all their dimensions, in the context of
globalization and the entrenchment of austerity and individualism.
Her arguments are accessible, engaging and convincing. The book
makes an important contribution to the resurgence of class
analysis, and will be widely read."
Miriam Glucksmann, University of Essex
"Harriet Bradley's new edition of Fractured Identities synthesises the changes consequent upon globalisation, the War on Terror, and changing demographics since the first edition with her clear and coherent account of the classic sociological work. Any student using the book will be extremely fortunate: it is innovative, current, and classic."
