Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis

Contrasts. Economics can make for dismal reading, and sociology can be tedious. Readers who are apprehensive about a book that combines both can relax and enjoy Robert Putnam’s fine writing in his book titled, Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis. Putnam brings to life the inequality in American society through his presentation of data and the personal stories that he injects into the text, including his own life. The combination of data and anecdote can nudge a reader toward Putnam’s own conclusions. Whether one agrees with him or not, this well-written book presents the inequality challenge for every reader’s consideration and reflection.
