This outstanding book provides an insightful and intimate view into the life of a working-class man in a big city neighbourhood. He traces the life-course experience of Tony Santangelo (a pseudonym), an Italian, Catholic, construction worker from New Yorks upper east side. The reviews have been uniformly excellent (This book provides much to ponder, discuss, argue, and analyze. It certainly could serve as a blueprint for other life-history analyses wrote one reviewer in Contemporary Sociology.)
