Michele Lamont, associate professor of sociology at Princeton University, worked on a book that will examine the class, racial, and cultural differences among low-status white-collar and blue-collar workers residing in the suburbs of New York and Paris. She completed the analysis of 150 interviews, on which the work is based, and wrote two RSF working papers, "The Rhetoric of Racism and Anti-Racism in France and the United States" and "Above People Above: Status and Worth among White and Black Workers."
