Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new edition contextualizes Lareau's original ethnography in a discussion of the most pressing issues facing educators at the beginning of the new millennium.

Review:

"An important and timely book about the ways parents are able (and unable) to shape their children's educational experiences....Should be read by all current and future educators...required reading for students of qualitative research." Amercian Journal of Sociology

Review:

"Home Advantage is a superb empirical study of family-school relations. The nuanced analysis, especially of the dynamics of social class, has given this work the well-earned status of a classic whose insights are of lasting value." Barrie Thorne, author of Gender Play: Girls and Boys in School
