- Publisher's Summary
- This history traces evolving cross-group relationships in a comprehensive high school located in a town that shifted from a rural, predominantly white middle-class population to a more urban, multiracial population between 1950 and 2000. Oral historical, archival, and demographic research revealed the ways in which institutional norms, shifting demographics, and students' diverse backgrounds intersected to shape peer relationships across racial, gender, and class divides.
