Snobbery is a more serious matter than some may think: the arguments around Brexit and Trump show that accusations of snobbery have become part of political discourse and public sentiment, building social divisions and reflecting deeper issues of class inequality. Social class is not simply about wealth, health and life-chances but also about everyday social experience, such as being included or excluded. As social inequality grows, snobbery is becoming ever more pertinent. This book takes a fresh and engaging look at this key issue, drawing on literature, popular culture and autobiography as well as sociology and history. David Morgan explores the complex history and different varieties of snobbery as well as its all-pervasive character to reveal why, despite claims about the openness of our society, it is still a matter of public concern.

''David Morgan applies his considerable sociological imagination to everyday life which both challenges and delights. His analysis of the processes and persistence of snobbery is no exception.'' Sue Scott, University of York "A delicious literary feast of research evidence, amusing anecdotes, personal reflection, and clever argument....a great and highly enjoyable read." Diane Reay, University of Cambridge ''While many books on inequality allude to snobbery and address overlapping issues, this is the first to be written on the subject that draws upon social science.'' Andrew Sayer, Lancaster University
