really liked it
bookshelves: politicalscience
Read in January, 1999

I don't always agree with it, but anyone concerned with American society today needs to wrestle with Putnam's data and conclusions. Be sure to also read his book on Italy for the precursor to this one. Also--make sure to read the Ladd Report for a fantastic response to Putnam.
