Making sense of America : sociological analyses and essays
For four decades, Herbert J. Gans has been one of the leading sociologists in the United States. His writings on urban problems, social policy, and American culture have been widely read throughout the U.S. and his sharp analyses have been influential in shaping policies in Washington and elsewhere. This collection of Gans' most important writings, including excerpts from his prominent books, Urban Villagers and Levittown, is the most comprehensive source of his work to date -- a valuable source for social scientists, students, and all those who care about social policy.
