Industry Reviews

In the outpouring of books on education in the last decade, none has been more important than Paul Willis's Learning to Labor. The unique contribution of this book is that it shows, with glittering clarity, how the rebellion of poor and working class kids against school authority prepares them for working class jobs. No American interested in education or in labor can afford not to read and study this book carefully. -- Stanley Aronowitz A remarkable achievement...the best book on male working class youth since Whyte's Street Corner Society [1943]. -- David H. Hargreaves New Society
