From Library Journal
A companion volume to Habits of the Heart ( LJ 3/1/85), this anthology can also stand alone. It contains extracts from the writings of educators, philosophers, sociologists, poets, theologians, and politicians, giving a panoramic look at how America has lived and felt from John Winthrop's time on. The writings of Emerson and Norman Mailer, Jefferson and Jerry Falwell, Tillie Olsen and David Riesman represent an astounding range in era, style, and subject. The book probably comes as close to capturing the transcendent, ever-escaping reality of American life as collections of readings permit. A.J. Anderson, G.S.L.I.S., Simmons Coll., Boston
