Summary "This innovative book explores the relevance of class for understanding our world today. Using a historical lens, Reagan studies the experiences of working-class peoples, from migrant farm workers in California to the "factory girls" of New England and Black workers in the South, to explore the variety of working-class experiences. He investigates how the concepts of racial capitalism and black feminist thought, when applied to class studies and popular movements, allow us to recognize that our movements can be diverse and particularistic as well as have elements of the universal experience shared by all workers. Arguing most class analysis misses major elements of what class is and how it operates, Reagan combines intersectional theory and materialism to show that culture, economics, idealogy, and consciousness are all factors that go into making "class" meaningful."--From back cover
