This is one of my favorite Discworld books. The plot is "who's trying to murder Lord Vetinari", but the theme is social castes and slavery. At the top are the aristocracy trying to restore their days of absolute power. At the bottom are the golems, working the longest hours in the dirtiest job for no pay. In the middle is Sam Vimes and the Watch trying to find justice for all.

"The common people? They're nothing special. They're no different than the rich and powerful other than they've got no money or power. But the law should be there to balance things up a bit."
