In the wake of Robert Putnam's bestselling book "Bowling Alone," media and popular opinion often contend that American society is losing its cohesion. In an era of culture wars, deep political divisions, and all-consuming household technologies, are we losing our connections with one another? Is American society falling apart?Not according to this new book, which draws upon two renowned national surveys to reveal a very different picture. Jones' poignant study of social capital in America explores current trends encompassing family life, work, social networks, and more. He is able to show surprising correlations: those who most use the internet are more likely to participate in voluntary organizations; etc. In lively prose with easy-to-read charts, Jones counters the prevailing myths of American Society by confronting them with the voices of Americans, their attitudes and behaviors, and the facts of their daily lives.
