9780471263760: Limbo: Blue-Collar Roots, White-Collar Dreams (Social Science)

"Hopefully, this superbly written book will give voice to the millions who have to make this transition..." (San Francisco Chronicle, November 2, 2003) "...this book is too good and too important to be limited to a narrow audience." (The Philadelphia Inquirer, November 2, 2003)

Vom Verlag:

In Limbo, award-winning journalist Alfred Lubrano identifies and describes an overlooked cultural phenomenon: the internal conflict within individuals raised in blue-collar homes, now living white-collar lives. These people often find that the values of the working class are not sufficient guidance to navigate the white-collar world, where unspoken rules reflect primarily upper-class values. Torn between the world they were raised in and the life they aspire too, they hover between worlds, not quite accepted in either. Himself the son of a Brooklyn bricklayer, Lubrano informs his account with personal experience and interviews with other professionals living in limbo. For millions of Americans, these stories will serve as familiar reminders of the struggles of achieving the American Dream.
