Aint No Makin It: Aspirations and Attainment in a Low-Income Neighborhood, Second Edition with a New Foreword by Joe Feagin by Jay Macleod

With the original 1987 publication ofAint No Makin ItJay MacLeod brought us to the Clarendon Heights housing project where we met the Brothers and Hallway Hangers. Their story of poverty, race, and defeatism moved readers and challenged ethnic stereotypes. MacLeods return eight years later, and the resulting 1995 revision, revealed little improvement in the lives of these men as they struggled in the labor market and crime-ridden underground economy. This classic ethnography addresses one of the most important issues in modern social theory and policy: how social inequality is reproduced from one generation to the next. Now republished with a preface by Joe Feagin,Aint No Makin Itremains an admired and invaluable text.
