I have to admit that I am inclined to agree with the implications Dr. Weiner makes regarding his observations on race and social class in the united states, you may not, but you will enjoy debating him in your mind,(or in the comment section), about his conclusions.
A very enjoyable thought provoking read.
(Social Worker and Guidance Counselor in Brooklyn NY)
Dr. Weiner weaves a variety of real life characters through his 250 page narrative in an endeavor to document the way institutions turn individual human relations into back-stabbing, brown-nosing power struggles. His characters are as diverse as high school students, Russians, Bedouins, the KKK, radicals and red necks, policeman, Israelis, and corporate executives. Dr. Weiner is both a teacher and a learner in the process, and while his story takes place in many different circumstances, it inevitably returns to the classroom.
Utilizing the Socratic Method, Dr. Weiner records what happens when a teacher treats adolescents with respect and confronts them with the truth; a teaching strategy that has turned many a chaotic classroom into a genuine learning environment and many an apathetic youth into a life-time learner.
What is constant though out Dr. Weiner's narrative is a profound sense of humanity and an unyielding quest for truth; a deep sociological truth; a deep photograph of humanity.
Deep Photographs: The Education of a Sociologist, is a valuable tool for the teacher, parent , youth minister, social worker, police officer and corporate cog - really anyone who is involved in interpersonal dynamics -even teens.
I am currently reading Deep Photographs to juniors and seniors in high school who find the truths it bares about teenagers eye opening ,empowering, and worthy of critical self examination. They are captivated.
