Traditionally, class analysis has exaggerated the role of economic differentiation, particularly that of the informal economy, and has underestimated the degree of common consciousness amongst the `labouring class'. In Divisions and Solidarities, Alison MacEwen Scott examines class analysis and the inter-relationship between gender and class which creates a shared interest between men and women in some contexts and a divergence of interest in others. Using case studies of the urban population in Latin America, she presents a major critique of existing class theories and presents a new theoretical treatment on class formation, the orthodoxy of the informal economy, class consciousness and political participation.Glossary of Spanish words remodelaciAcn saquero sierra serrano tienda (a€”ita) trabajador street planning jacket ... parents cars and small vehicles operating as buses cohabitees respectable (decencia=respectability) housekeeping money owners royal grant ... that stresses male virility (adj. machista) master tradesman person of mixed race origin savings fund manual worker trade journeyman householdanbsp;...
