BeschreibungDrawing upon both classical insights and more recent writings, Hearn provides a compelling account of social breakdown in the United States. The book examines the conditions most responsible for the deterioration of social institutions, notably the family, and of communitarian interdependencies, such as those that support neighborhoods. The originality of Hearns book lies in the solutions he proposes, which differ from those rooted in what Hearn calls the languages of modernity. Hearn advocates modes that would serve instead to renew solidarity and reclaim social virtue. Readers of this book are invited to draw their own conclusions by relying in larger part on themselves as parents, neighbors, community members, and citien-participants in a civil society in restoration. As the American Journal of Sociology notes, the book succeeds in its goals, and it deserves to be widely read.
