Publisher's Comments

Having moved from a working class family background into the ranks of the professional middle class, Jensen (a licensed counseling and community psychologist practicing in Minneapolis) came to recognize the divide that separated the two and the operations of classism that remain invisible yet deeply embedded in middle class culture. Here, she uses stories from her own life, as well as the lives of her students, therapy clients, and relatives, in order to show how class and classism operate in personal and community development, particularly over the course of educational life histories.
