WHITE WORKING CLASS Overcoming Class Cluelessness in America

by | Read by Liisa Ivary

Contemporary Culture • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Liisa Ivary's performance is notable for the way she delivers a hard-hitting narration of this troubling social research while also conveying the author's altruism and equanimity. Never hectoring or preachy, her reading communicates the author's authoritative thinking while adding enough charm to help Williams's thoughtful book sound even more accessible. A legal scholar and acclaimed cultural critic, Williams offers research that revealed not only prejudice toward working-class people but also the persistence of double standards that we still use to evaluate the choices made by women, as well as by certain ethnic, racial, and religious groups. These fascinating insights offer plausible reasons why so many working-class whites seemed to vote against their interests in the last election, and how class-blind Democrats and other elites contributed to this defection.
