The France of the Little-Middles : A Suburban Housing Development in Greater Paris, Paperback / softback Book

The France of the Little-Middles : A Suburban Housing Development in Greater Paris Paperback / softback

Part of the Anthropology of Europe series

Description

The Poplars housing development in suburban Paris is home to what one resident called the "Little-Middles" - a social group on the tenuous border between the working- and middle- classes.

In the 1960s The Poplars was a site of upward social mobility, which fostered an egalitarian sense of community among residents.

This feeling of collective flourishing was challenged when some residents moved away, selling their homes to a new generation of upwardly mobile neighbors from predominantly immigrant backgrounds.

This volume explores the strained reception of these migrants, arguing that this is less a product of racism and xenophobia than of anxiety about social class and the loss of a sense of community that reigned before.
