The Rise and Fall of the American Middle Class

“Jack London predicted the rise of fascism. American critics since the 1950s have tended to see the prediction of class warfare in the United States as a fantasy disproved by the preservation — indeed, the growth in strength — of the middle class. Time will tell whether these critics have been over-hasty to judge.”

~~ Stoddard Martin, “California Writers” (1983)
