Class Reunion by P-TaylorFrancis

VIEWS: 48 PAGES: 4

Noted scholar Lois Weis first visited the town of "Freeway" in her 1990 book, Working Class Without Work. In that book we met the students and teachers of Freeway's high school to understand how these working-class folks made sense of their lives. Now, fifteen years later, Weis has gone back to Freeway for Class Reunion. This time her focus is on the now grown-up students who are, for the most part, still working class and now struggling to survive the challenges of the global economy. Class Reunion is a rare and valuable longitudinal ethnographic study that provides powerful, provocative insight into how the lives of these men and women have changed over the last two decades--and what their prospects might be for the future.

Description

Noted scholar Lois Weis first visited the town of "Freeway" in her 1990 book, Working Class Without
Work. In that book we met the students and teachers of Freeway's high school to understand how these
working-class folks made sense of their lives. Now, fifteen years later, Weis has gone back to Freeway
for Class Reunion. This time her focus is on the now grown-up students who are, for the most part, still
working class and now struggling to survive the challenges of the global economy. Class Reunion is a
rare and valuable longitudinal ethnographic study that provides powerful, provocative insight into how the
lives of these men and women have changed over the last two decades-and what their prospects might be
for the future.
