About this product
- DescriptionOver the past three decades, our daily lives have changed slowly but dramatically. Boundaries between leisure and work, public space and private space, and home and office have blurred and become permeable. In Elsewhere, U.S.A., acclaimed sociologist Dalton Conley connects our day-to-day experiences with occasionally overlooked sociological changes, from women s increasing participation in the labor force to rising ecomic inequality among successful professionals. In doing so, he provides us with an X-ray view of our new social reality.
