Reviews

'Katherine Smith's book is a deeply insightful, sometimes painfully-honest but always riveting ethnographic account of white working class experiences of fairness, racism and the transformation of urban Britain during the early years of the twenty first century.' - Alexander Smith, Lecturer in Sociology, University of Warwick, UK
