American Togetherness: Structured Diversity in a Midwestern Town

Aurelio B. Calderon

Discipline: Social Science, Sociology, Cultural Studies



Written by Harve Varenne, a French anthropologist who spent a year in a small midwestern town to observe social structures, family relationship and educational, religious and governmental systems, this book is not just another American community study like Lloyd Warner's "Elmtown and Jonesville," or James West's "Plainville," studies done some thirty years ago.
