Reading Between the Lines

"Belonging in America is a free-spirited and far-sighted inquiry into how culture helps Americans find 'meaning' by which to live."Los Angeles Times
Belonging in America gives voice to unspoken conventions and silent understandings and asks why our culture draws the lines it does-between home and work, family and friends, or humans and animals. Throughout her fascinating book, Constance Perin shows us the systems of meaning through which contemporary Americans create social order and define their relationships.
