This book explores structural constraints and the possibility of agency by examining the psychic landscapes of social class among educationally high-achieving girls in rural Leinster, Ireland and Vermont, United States. It highlights the interplay of global and local forces by showing how spatial factors influenced the girls' relationships with their localities as rural places, helped inform their plans for higher education and knowledge-based work, and shaped their migration intentions.
