Learning to Labor in New Times foregrounds nine essays which re-examine the work of noted sociologist Paul Willis, 25 years after the publication of his seminal Learning to Labor, one of the most frequently cited and assigned texts in the cultural studies and social foundations of education.


"…Learning to Labor in New Times is a fine tribute to one of the most important achievements in the history of educational and ethnographic research." – David Bills and Su Euk Park, Educational Studies, 43: 263-267, 2008
