Read full description of the books:



A sweeping new look at the unheralded transformation
that is eroding the foundations of American exceptionalism.

Without any notice, America’s basic community building
blocks have dissolved. What Alexis de Tocqueville
called the “township”—that unique locus of the power of
citizens—has been replaced. But with what? In a work that
combines rich history and keen sociological observation,
Marc Dunkelman identifies an epochal shift in the structure
of American life. Routines that once put doctors and lawyers
in touch with grocers and plumbers have withered as technology
allows us to connect exclusively with a more select
group. The rhythms that compelled us to understand the
people living across town have disappeared. In their place
are new patterns that confound our ability to compromise in
politics, innovate within the private sector, and care properly
for the most vulnerable. But the American Age has not yet
ended, and The Vanishing Neighbor argues that to win the
future we need to adapt yesterday’s institutions to the realities
of the twenty-first-century American community.
