Product description


"Mr. Murray's sobering portrait is of a nation where millions of people are losing touch with the founding virtues that have long lent American lives purpose, direction and happiness."--W. Bradford Wilcox, The Wall Street Journal

"Coming Apart brims with ideas about what ails America.--The Economist

"A timely investigation into a worsening class divide no one can afford to ignore."--Publishers Weekly

"[Charles Murray] argues for the need to focus on what has made the U.S. exceptional beyond its wealth and military power . . . religion, marriage, industriousness, and morality."--Booklist (starred review)

"[Charles Murray] has written an incisive, alarming, and hugely frustrating book about the state of American society."--Roger Lowenstein, Bloomberg Businessweek
