Peter W. Cookson, Jr., Caroline Hodges Persell

A lively behind-the-scenes look at prep school life and underlife.. Why do private boarding schools produce such a disproportionate number of leaders in business, government, and the arts? In the most comprehensive study of its kind to date, two sociologists describe the complex ways in which elite schools prepare students for success and power, and they also provide a lively behind-the-scenes look at prepschool life and underlife.
