    PHIL Talks: Dr. Robert Putnam

    Apr 20, 2017

    Drawing on a formidable body of research undertaken especially for this book, "Our Kids" explores the new landscape of diminished opportunities set in an age of fragile families, crumbling communities and disappearing jobs. Written with authority and compassion, it is a signal contribution to the ongoing conversation about inequality in America. It’s the American dream: get a good education, work hard, buy a house and achieve prosperity and success. This is the America we believe in, a nation of opportunity, constrained only by ability and effort. But during the last twenty-five years, we have seen a disturbing “opportunity gap” emerge.
