About Missing Class
Compellingly written for both activists and social scientists, Missing Class describes class differences in paths to activism, attitudes towards leadership, methods of conflict resolution, ways of using language, diversity practices, use of humor, methods of recruiting, and group process preferences.
Too often, we miss class. Missing Class makes a persuasive case that seeing class culture differences could enable activists to strengthen their own groups and build more durable cross-class alliances for social justice. More about the Book.
