Description

Klappentext

The first edition of "Unequal Childhoods" was an instant classic, portraying in riveting detail the unexpected ways in which social class influences parenting in white and African American families. A decade later, Annette Lareau has revisited the same families and interviewed the original subjects to examine the impact of social class in the transition to adulthood.



Zusammenfassung
Class does make a difference in the lives and futures of American children. Drawing on observations of black and white middle-class, working-class, and poor families, this title explores this fact, offering a picture of childhood. It focuses on the frenetic families managing their children's hectic schedules of 'leisure' activities.
