In the global world of the twenty-first century, class boundaries are subtle and permeable, though real nonetheless. Markers of identity, authenticity, and belonging can change with a gesture or a glance, making people feel they do or don't belong in certain places, with certain people, at certain times. In these powerfully written ethnographic stories, Rhoda Halperin maps the boundaries of class by examining three themes: crossing class boundaries, class creativity, and class vulnerability.

In telling these stories, Halperin draws on a wealth of ethnographic experiences in this country and abroad. Her book challenges class stereotypes in ways that touch on universals across cultures and over time.

Review:

"This is a can't-put-it-down book... The lives of the people touch you, compel you to go on reading. For many it will open a window of understanding; for others it will give validity to a way of life." -Judith E. Marti, Associate Professor of Anthropology, California State University, Northridge
