"LeMasters' book is a valuable and popularly written source of information on the attitudes of working class men and women. Highly recommended."--"Library Journal" "Blue-Collar Aristocrats" is a major statement about a group of Americans too little understood and too long ignored by by the country's decision- and policy-makers. Thanks to the work of E. E. LeMasters, we now have a rare and human insight into the lives, feelings, attitudes, and problems of America's blue-collar aristocrats--one that has the potential both to add to our knowledge and to contribute toward solutions to some of our nation's broadest social problems. "LeMasters has given us a brilliant sketch of what the well-developed unions have created--the average American. He's great."--"West Coast Review of Books" "This is not a dry sociogram. The quality of life of these people comes with the smell of smoke and beer, the sounds of boisterous laughter above a blaring juke box and the clicking of the pool balls."--"New York Times".
