Using a sociological model, The British Working Class in Postwar Film looks at how working-class people are portrayed in British feature films from the decade after World War II. Original statistical data is used to assess the popularity of the films with audiences. With an interdisciplinary approach and the avoidance of jargon, this book seeks to broaden the approach to film studies. Readers are introduced to the skills of other disciplines, while sociologists and historians are encouraged to consider the value of film evidence in their own fields.
