Editorial Reviews

Gregg Barak
This collection is quite effective in capturing a representation of the diversity, including the similar and dissimilar experiences, of those aspiring and successful academics from a working class background.
Charles Varano
This is a relevant and emotionally compelling collection of essays. The authors delve deeply into to the issues of class conflict and ambivalence, the tension between the professional-managerial class and the working class, and the obstacles to social mobility. Recommended.
