“Social Distinctions, Social Actions among the upper and middle classes” examines the behavioural models for volunteer activities during the strike and their relationship to the socially constructed categories of age, class, and gender. In fact, many of the youthful elite in the 1920s continued to lead relatively mundane lives in pursuit of careers, study, charitable work, and simple entertainments. Yet their popular image depicts Society's youthful members (men as well as women) spending all their time indulging in country house pranks, charity rags, treasure hunts, and fancy dress parties--forms of play assumed to be “just jokes.”
