Dear DJD -- are you familiar with the work of Nicos Poulantzas? The best work I've seen based on that approach & focussed on the USA is by Erik Olin Wright at the U of Wisconsin, which came out several years ago.
There may now be more recent work in the field. If anyone is aware of such I'd appreciate being tipped off to it -- ?

1) marxist (not weberian) class analysis of today's society
I recently read zizek saying that the two common answers as to today's proletariat composition--intellectual workers or real production in 3rd world--is too simple, and regardless of what else i think of zizek, i think he's right about that. who is dealing with pressing problems such as these? what can we be studying today to answer these questions?
2) how can i test the theory i am learning? (specifically considering that i'm one person or will be working with a small group) what should one do?
3) i'm also interested to hear people's favorite Marxist journals, newspapers, website, etc.
thank you for your time
