Description:
This volume attempts to come to terms with the myriad changes facing American society as the century draws to a close. In his concluding essay, Wolfe sums up the standpoint of the contributors by arguing that America has become "decentered." No longer are standard institutional models adequate for describing what constitutes a "normal" life.
