An important and timely book about the ways parents are able (and unable) to shape their children’s educational experiences. . . . Should be read by all current and future educators . . . required reading for students of qualitative research.

Adam Gamoran
Home Advantage is already a classic in the sociology of education. It is theoretically rich and its findings are profound. It is also a model of excellence for qualitative research methods.
Aaron M. Pallas
Home Advantage is a marvelous tool for teaching about both the dynamics of school-family linkages and the realities of the process of social research. The book invariably triggers spirited discussions among students, and has a lasting influence on how they think about the sociology of education and about research.
Barrie Thorne
Home Advantage is a superb empirical study of family-school relations. The nuanced analysis, especially of the dynamics of social class, has given this work the well-earned status of a classic whose insights are of lasting value.
Doug Porpora
Home Advantage is the most compelling empirical illustration I have found of the concept of cultural capital. It is a rich book to teach, and in the stratification course in which I used it, the students considered it the best of the books they were assigned.
