Politics & Social Sciences Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. ಼ Book Author Robert D Putnam ೩ Few people outside certain scholarly circles had heard the name Robert D Putnam before 1995 But then this self described obscure academic hit a nerve with a journal article called Bowling Alone Suddenly he found himself invited to Camp David, his picture in People magazine, and his thesis at the center of a raging debate In a nutshell, he argued that civil society was breaking down as Americans became disconnected from their families, neighbors, communities, and the republic itself The organizations that gave life to democracy were fraying Bowling became his driving metaphor Years ago, he wrote, thousands of people belonged to bowling leagues Today, however, they re likely to bowl alone Television, two career families, suburban sprawl, generational changes in values these and other changes in American society have meant that fewer and fewer of us find that the League of Women Voters, or the United Way, or the Shriners, or the monthly bridge club, or even a Sunday picnic with friends fits the way we have come to live Our growing social capital deficit threatens educational performance, safe neighborhoods, equitable tax collection, democratic responsiveness, everyday honesty, and even our health and happiness The conclusions reached in the book Bowling Alone rest on a mountain of data gathered by Putnam and a team of researchers since his original essay appeared Its breadth of information is astounding yes, he really has statistics showing people are less likely to take Sunday picnics nowadays Dozens of charts and graphs track everything from trends in PTA participation to the number of times Americans say they give the finger to other drivers each year If nothing else, Bowling Alone is a fascinating collection of factoids Yet it does seem to provide an explanation for why we tell pollsters that we wish we lived in a civil, trustworthy, collectively caring community What s , writes Putnam, Americans are right that the bonds of our communities have withered, and we are right to fear that this transformation has very real costs Putnam takes a stab at suggesting how things might change, but the book s real strength is in its diagnosis rather than its proposed solutions Bowling Alone won t make Putnam any less controversial, but it may come to be known as a path breaking work of scholarship, one whose influence has a long reach into the 21st century John J MillerIf you don t go to somebody s funeral, they won t come to yours, Yogi Berra once said, neatly articulating the value of social networks In this alarming and important study, Putnam, a professor of sociology at Harvard, charts the grievous deterioration over the past two generations of the organized ways in which people relate to one another and partake in civil life in the U.S For example, in 1960, 62.8% of Americans of voting age participated in the presidential election, whereas by 1996, the percentage had slipped to 48.9% While most Americans still claim a serious religious commitment, church attendance is down roughly 25% 50% from the 1950s, and the number of Americans who attended public meetings of any kind dropped 40% between 1973 and 1994 Even the once stable norm of community life has shifted one in five Americans moves once a year, while two in five expect to move in five years Putnam claims that this has created a U.S population that is increasingly isolated and less empathetic toward its fellow citizens, that is often angrier and less willing to unite in communities or as a nation Marshaling a plentiful array of facts, figures, charts and survey results, Putnam delivers his message with verve and clarity He concludes his analysis with a concise set of potential solutions, such as educational programs, work based initiatives and funded community service programs, offering a ray of hope in what he perceives to be a dire situation Agent, Rafe Sagalyn 3 city tour 20 city radio satellite tour June Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.
