Chav! A User's Guide To Britain's New Ruling Class
Chav! A User's Guide To Britain's New Ruling Class

5.0 out of 5 stars A critique of the counterculture, 5 Oct 2004
This is the first book to document the rise of the new social underclass that is infesting British cities - namely the chav. The chav, for the uninitiated is essentially the nineteenth century lumpen proletariat transported to the present day. Chavs exist in a neo-Dickensian world of petty crime, shellsuits, longterm unemployment and gold plated jewellery.
The book provides a useful counterpoint to the standard theories on the underclass in UK society and as such is essential reading for sociology students everywhere.
