Description:
A critique of the white American class structure argues that the paths of social mobility that once advanced the nation are now serving to further isolate an elite upper class while enforcing a growing and resentful white underclass.
Our kind of people -- The foundations of the new upper class -- A new kind of segregation -- How thick is your bubble? -- The bright side of the new upper class -- The founding virtues -- Belmont and Fishtown -- Marriage -- Industriousness -- Honesty -- Religiosity -- The real Fishtown -- The size of the new lower class -- The selective collapse of American community -- The founding virtues and the stuff of life -- One nation, divisible -- Alternative futures.
