Art and Class in the American Home

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

Dubbed as "You Are What You Hang (or Don't)" by the "New York "
"Times, " "Inside Culture" takes us on a tour of 160 homes in and
around New York City, from affluent townhouses on Manhattan's Upper East
Side and rowhouses in blue-collar Brooklyn to middle and upper-class
suburbs of Long Island. The result is an unprecedented portrait of the
use of cultural artifacts--fine art, photographs, religious art--in
private lives.
"This is a first-class addition to what we know about culture in the
specific rather than the abstract."--Howard S. Becker, "Contemporary "
"Sociology"
"This book is well worth reading, especially in your own home."--Eugene
Halton, "American Journal of Sociology"
"David Halle's researches earned him a license amateur voyeurs would
kill for. . . . Refreshing for readers outside his discipline."--Peter
Campbell, "London Review of Books"
" This book] tells us interesting things about ourselves. . . . It
affords us a birds-eye view of American culture from which we can see .
. . unsuspected patterns of tastes and acquisitions."--James Gardner,
"Washington Times "
" A] voyeuristic thrill. . . . Lucid and entertaining. . . . A
fascinating book that will open the eyes of anyone who's ever glibly
said about art, 'I know what I like.' After reading "Inside "
"Culture, " they'll also know a little bit more about why."--Maureen
Corrigan, "New York Observer"
