Editorial Reviews

Review

“Putnam is technically a Harvard social scientist, but a better description might be poet laureate of civil society.” (Jason DeParle The New York Times)

“An ambitious book . . .  Bowling Alone is a prodigious achievement. Mr. Putnam’s scholarship is wide-ranging, his intelligence luminous, his tone modest, his prose unpretentious and frequently funny.” (The Economist)

“A mountainous, momentous work . . . . [Putnam’s] put his finger on an important sociological development.” (David Nyhan The Boston Globe)

Bowling Alone provides important new data on the trends in civic engagement and social capital. . . . It is a formidable achievement. It will henceforth be impossible to discuss these issues knowledgeably without reading Putnam’s book and thinking about it.” (Paul Starr The New Republic)

“Crammed with statistics and analyses that seek to document civic decline in the United States. . . .  Bowling Alone is to be commended for stimulating awareness of civic engagement and providing a wealth of data on trends in contemporary America.”
  (Francis Fukuyama The Washington Post)
