    I was expecting this book to be a good, informative analysis of working class Appalachia, but it completely exceeded my expectations in every way To say I was blown away by it would likely be a bit of an understatement.If you can make it past the theory and jargon heavy first chapter which ends up being tremendously useful later on you will be rewarded with not only a history of Central Appalachian working class struggles, or their often apparent absence, but also with a new and unique way o I was expecting this book to be a good, informative analysis of working class Appalachia, but it completely exceeded my expectations in every way To say I was blown away by it would likely be a bit of an understatement.If you can make it past the theory and jargon heavy first chapter which ends up being tremendously useful later on you will be rewarded with not only...
