Very interesting read about class stratifications
Interesting look at class in American society.
I never thought about class in the way the authors present it before reading this book. It's much more than what you earn or your education level. I used to live in Santa Fe. Because of the influx of celebrities and millionaires, many of the "natives" can't afford to live in the homes their families have had for generations because of taxes. It's really an eye-opener.
An interesting series of snapshots, from varying perspectives,of the state of class divisions in the US in 2004, from the New York Times series. I found it had enough meat to stand up to a second reading (after I had read nearly all the pieces in the Times when they first came out). Includes pieces on the interconnections of class with family, marriage, education, health, housing patterns, and so on.
we are all rich, we are all poor.
A compilation of a NY Times series on Class, this book does a great job of capturing numerous voices on the issue of "class" in America. A great book for Sociology, political science, liberal arts students and any others interested in issues of class.
