From the Publisher:

Robert E. Park Award, American Sociological Association

From the Inside Flap:

"Based on interviews with working-class white youths in three communities near Boston, this book "gives us two snapshots of three groups of youths who find themselves in the crisis of the early seventies."
—Contemporary Sociology

"For today’s teachers of working-class youth, who may still believe it’s necessary to convince their students that ‘to move up, one must move out,' Steinitz and Solomon have some advice."
—The Boston Sunday Globe

"A vivid examination of working-class youth’s coming of age within the confines of the mythology and reality of the American Dream."
—Harvard Educational Review

"Steinitz and Solomon have plunged into the worlds of working class youth and emerged with a sensitive report on these youths’ agendas, ambitions, and melancholia-matters normally hidden from the academic bourgeoisie. We are offered a poignant portrait of a crowd whose members have, we discover, thoroughly distinctive faces."
—Robert E. Lane, Professor Emeritus, Yale University

"This fine qualitative study is a highly readable and thoughtful examination of working-class life that belongs on the bookshelves of psychologists concerned with identity or adolescence."
—Contemporary Psychology

"This book brings the missing voices of working class students into the debates on education. Students in my classes read it and feel the shock of recognition and understanding...a wonderful book."
—Joseph Featherstone, Michigan State University
