Less than one in five Americans think ‘race, gender, religion or social class are very important for getting ahead in life, ‘ Annette Lareau tells us in her carefully researched and clearly written new book. But as she brilliantly shows, everything from looking authority figures in the eye when you shake their hands to spending long periods in a shared space and squabbling with siblings is related to social class. This is one of the most penetrating works I have read on a topic that only grows in importance as the class gap in America widens.”–Arlie Russell Hochschild, author of “The Time Bind” and “The Commercialization of Intimate Life”.
