Abstract

Abstract:

The Lonely Crowd, David Riesman’s sociological bestseller, was published a little over 70 years ago. It was an early example of a popular literature of the 1950s that focused on the danger that excessive conformity posed to the American character. Most prevailing diagnoses of the state of the nation today are very different, focusing instead on excessive isolation and polarization.
