Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 188911975X, Paperback)John White's fascinating new book explores the increasingly dominant role values play in today's public and private life, concluding that a serious rift in political and cultural values in America produced the astounding tie between George W. Bush and Al Gore in the 2000 presidential election. White argues that while politically important, the present "values divide" goes much deeper than cultural conflicts between Republicans and Democrats. Today, citizens are reexamining their own intimate values--including how they work, live, and interact with each other--while the nation's population is rapidly changing. Collectively the answers to these value questions, White contends, have remade both American politics and the popular culture.
* Current--takes stock of the national mood in the aftermath of September 11th.
