Home Advantage is already a classic in the sociology of education. It is theoretically rich and its findings are profound. It is also a model of excellence for qualitative research methods. -- Adam Gamoran, University of Wisconsin, Madison Home Advantage is a marvelous tool for teaching about both the dynamics of school-family linkages and the realities of the process of social research. The book invariably triggers spirited discussions among students, and has a lasting influence on how they think about the sociology of education and about research. -- Aaron M. Pallas, Michigan State University Home Advantage is a superb empirical study of family-school relations. The nuanced analysis, especially of the dynamics of social class, has given this work the well-earned status of a classic whose insights are of lasting value. -- Barrie Thorne, author of Gender Play: Girls and Boys in School, University of California, Berkeley An important and timely book about the ways parents are able (and unable) to shape their children's educational experiences... Should be read by all current and future educators ... required reading for students of qualitative research. American Journal of Sociology Home Advantage is the most compelling empirical illustration I have found of the concept of cultural capital. It is a rich book to teach, and in the stratification course in which I used it, the students considered it the best of the books they were assigned. -- Doug Porpora, Department of Psychology and Sociology, Drexel University
