Lockwood, David

Lockwood, David

(1929-) British sociologist who has worked mainly at the LSE and the University of Essex, and whose main concern has been with the study of CLASS and SOCIAL STRATIFICATION, especially his studies of the BLACK-COATED WORKER (1958), and (with John GOLDTHORPE et al.) the AFFLUENT WORKER (Lockwood, 1966; Goldthorpe, Lockwood et al., 1988-89). See also MULTIDIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS OF SOCIAL STRATIFICATION, CLASS IMAGERY.

As well as his contributions to studies of class and stratification he has also made important interventions in central debates on SOCIOLOGICAL THEORY, notably his critiques of Talcott PARSONS and STRUCTURAL FUNCTIONALISM (see ‘Some Remarks on the Social System’, 1956, and ‘Social Integration and System Integration’, 1964) – see also SOCIAL INTEGRATION AND SYSTEM INTEGRATION His most recent book, Solidarity and Schism (1992), continues the discussion of these themes.
