About the Author:

Paul Willis is Research Fellow at the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, Birmingham University.

Review:

As fresh and challenging as when it was first published, Learning to Labor remains the text to inspire and teach ethnographers, from whatever disciplines,who probe unsentimentally human agency in institutions, political economy, and within the general constraints of modernity. -- George E. Marcus

The unique contribution of this book is that it shows, with glittering clarity, how the rebellion of poor and working class kids against school authority prepares them for working class jobs.No American interested in education or in labor can afford not to read and study this book carefully. -- Stanley Aranowitz
