The Upswing: How America Came Together a Century Ago and How We Can Do It Again
Hope. Most readers will finish Robert D. Putnam’s book titled, The Upswing: How America Came Together a Century Ago and How We Can Do It Again, with hope that better times can be ahead. Through alternating storytelling and presentation of statistics, Putnam describes a century-long transformation from I to We and back to I. Putnam proposes that we are capable of moving again to We. He makes a strong case that a society based on community can be achieved. We’ve done it before and we can do it again, and we should.
