A Comprehensive View of Our Changing Society.
From dust jacket ... - About the book...
- Was there ever such a mad rush to the suburbs ?
- Will automated man be the slave or the master of the machine ?
- Does the modern woman lose more in her family life than she gains in her career ?
- Are we repeating the history of the 20's and rushing madly toward a great depression ?
These and other important questions have been raised as a result of rapid and explosive changes in our society in the mid-twentieth century. They have attracted the attention of specialists - economists, sociologists, psychologists, technicians of all kinds - as well as students, businessmen and the general public. Many studies have been made of the changes, but very few attempts have been made to analyze their related meaning.
A Changing America brings together the important subjects of contemporary life that are ordinarily treated as separate and distinct - suburbia, service, leisure, automation, modern man, modern woman, and culture. The author interprets these subjects and shows how they are really interrelated, how they influence each other, and how they directly affect the daily life of every American.
Mr. Zelomek carefully avoids the sensational treatment often accorded the topics in newspapers, magazines, and books. The result is a complete, highly-readable appraisal of developments in one of the most exciting periods in American history.
