The Vanishing Neighbor: The Transformation of American Community

The Vanishing Neighbor: The Transformation of American Community

by Marc J. Dunkelman Author

A sobering tome on the fragmentation of US society. The author traces our shift, over time, and nearly-unnoticed, into a culture where we're unlikely to having meaningful or even fleeting in-person interactions with people unlike ourselves. He makes the case, drawing on the tools of history, technology, and sociology, that the heart of our current political gridlock is the deterioration of neighborly relationships.
