Families on the Fault Line: America's Working Class Speaks About the Family, the Economy, Race, and Ethnicity
With the sensitivity and compassion for which her work is renowned, she shows us how much all working-class families - white, black, Latino, or Asian - have in common and how valiantly they cope with the many challenges in their lives. And in a brilliant sociological and psychological analysis, she also explores how the failing economy has helped to create seemingly unbridgeable divisions among them. In this context, she explains how the social and economic realities of working-class family life form the backdrop against which racial and ethnic tensions have escalated to their present precarious place on the fault line.
