Format: Paperback
I am busy so I will not fill you full of a bunch of reasons this book is so great because it was a bit thick to read start to finish. However, I found it nicely referenced and cross referenced on an assortment of topics current in the area of educational sociology. I was able to easily access what I needed and found it helpful for finishing up my undergraduate thesis work. I think if I pursue graduate level work on this topic that I will find many of the findings in this book quite helpful. The book was well cited and written in a natural and easy prose to read.I reccommend this book over the other thirty I read this semester.
