Review: Unequal Childhoods: Class, Race, and Family Life

Unequal Childhoods: Class, Race, and Family Life Unequal Childhoods: Class, Race, and Family Life by Annette Lareau
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lareau's book explores the challenges that class offer up to children, particularly as it relates to outcomes and opportunities. What I really liked about this book is how she is able to connect the various ways that class does substantively change what youth are aware of and available to act upon based upon the class dynamics of their upbringing. This is particularly true when it comes to the education and job process.
