Description - The American Cultural Dialogue and its Transmission by George Spindler

This volume combines data obtained by a values projective technique over a period of more than 30 years, data obtained from census records, and ethnographic data obtained by the authors in fieldwork in several different places in the USA. Special attention is paid to schooling as a means of cultural transmission. The concept of "hinterland" (the great areas of the United States in between the metropolitan sectors) is developed and contrasted to metropolitan culture. The purpose of the book is to deal with a process in which all Americans, old and new, and of all ethnic groups and minorities, are caught up - the American cultural dialogue. This dialogue, centering on values such as individuality, freedom, community, equality and success transcends class and region.
