Editorial Reviews


"Cochran paints with broad strokes the picture of American values since early colonization....The chapter on bureaucracy is especially intriguing....Would be helpful for cultural historians, sociologists of religion, and any others with interest in Christ and cultural engagements."--Southwestern Journal of Theology

"An important work. Professor Cochran is especially skilled at relating economic change to cultural values....[A] thoughtful and lively study."--Teaching History

"Felicitously written, dense with ideas....Such a book, by an experienced and distinguished historian, should not fail to stimulate argument about and careful reinterpretation of the content and dynamics of American culture."--Journal of American History

"The most exciting interpretation of what has made America run and what is now slowing her down that I have read in at least two decades....It is Cochran at his best and most incisive."--Carl N. Degler, Stanford University

"For more than fifty years Thomas Cochran has been publishing important works in economic history....[This] informed and articulate scholar is still at work."--Contemporary Sociology

"Cochran's argument is persuasive, and penetrating insights abound throughout the study....[A] finely wrought...study of challenges to accepted belief."--Pennsyvania Magazine of History and Biography

"I plan to use Chalenges to American Values to sum up my course and to encourage original thinking."--Frederick H. Campbell, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
