In the bestselling tradition of Hillbilly Elegy, the acclaimed bestseller than explains why white America has become fractured and divided in education and class In Coming Apart, Charles Murray explores the formation of American classes that are different in kind from anything we have ever known, focusing on whites as a way of driving home the fact that the trends he describes do not break along lines of race or ethnicity. Drawing on five decades of statistics and research, Coming Apart demonstrates that a new upper class and a new lower class have diverged so far in core behaviors and values that they barely recognize their underlying American kinship—divergence that has nothing to do with income inequality and that has grown during good economic times and bad. The top and bottom of white America increasingly live in different cultures, Murray argues, with the powerful upper class living in enclaves surrounded by their own kind, ignorant about life in mainstream America, and the lower class suffering from erosions of family and community life that strike at the heart of the pursuit of happiness. That divergence puts the success of the American project at risk. The evidence in Coming Apart is about white America. Its message is about all of America.

Marked by two world wars, the Holocaust, and a host of violent conflicts, the twentieth century has been the most explosive and destructive in human history. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, it is vital that we understand what went wrong in the preceding hundred years. Historian Edward Kantowicz provides an engaging narrative of the events, people, and ideas driving the world's social and political course in the twentieth century in his two-volume work, The World in the Twentieth Century. In Coming Apart, Coming Together, volume 2 of his narrative history of the twentieth century, Edward Kantowicz explores the landmark events that shaped the planet after World War II. Noting that this period was dominated by two global events-the superpower Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union and the revolt against imperialism in Africa, Asia, and Latin America-Kantowicz shows how the trajectories of each have driven nations apart while, at the same time, also created political and regional alliances for bringing the world closer together. Providing compelling, often disconcerting reading, this volume helps make sense of what is happening in the world today by considering important lessons from our recent past.

The idea of "community" is increasingly vital to our individual and social well-being. Yet at the same time, our ordinary communal relations are being eroded by increased social and geographical mobility, lost traditions, and the growing pluralism of society. Examining this renewed desire for community, Coming Together/Coming Apart locates the current problems of society in the conditions of modern capitalism. Arising out of a common matrix of a world in crisis, contemporary religious, social and feminist discussions of community compose an ideological struggle over the reformation of society.

Coming out of the Closet without Coming Apart at the Seams is a witty yet stirring testimony of one lesbians struggles in and out of the closet. As a teenager, Gail peeked out of her closest from time to time. But, her fear of being ridiculed and misunderstood kept her from taking any chances. During Bible College, the closet became her home. After years of warped counseling in ex-gay ministries, she grew tired of trying to change. So, eventually, she took a risk. She risked losing her family, her friends and her faith. She risked it all . . . for the chance to be herself. Coming out of the Closet … is more than a memoir. It is an ideal read for anyone seeking to reconcile homosexuality and faith. Combining her Bible College background with unique story-telling abilities, Gail created a practical and powerful defense against religious and political agendas. Gails story is definitely out of the ordinary. Shes come completely out of her shell. Some will think shes out of her mind Others will think shes out of this world. But, no matter what, Gail has successfully come out of the closet without coming apart at the seams.

Inside and outside marriage, what happens to the woman betrayed? How do abandoned wives or lovers feel? What happens when the battle between the sexes becomes a triangle? The plots in this collection of eighteen stories written between the 1840s and 1980s are infinitely variable, and the outcomes will enrage, shock, amuse, and sometimes hearten. In some stories, women forge links with other women in solidarity. In others, women fight for their men and win. In many stories, the betrayal ultimately enriches the central character, who learns through the loss of her man the value of her own life.

Gamers, Multiculturalists, and the Great Coming Apart is the first book to pull together the central features of the American society, character, and history of the global era and its immediate aftermath into a single, powerful, comprehensive, and coherent picture. Seamlessly interdisciplinary, it looks at all facets of recent American society and history as reflecting first the global liberal paradigm that reigned from 1965 until 2016, and then the incipient paradigms that have competed during the years of crisis since.It is the first book to pull together the central features of American society, character, and history since 1965 into a single comprehensive and coherent picture that dissents from key aspects of the long-dominant paradigm. Gamers, Multiculturalists, and the Great Coming Apart describes and extensively analyzes the gamers, the fascinating new upper class that has risen to dominance in this country as in most others during the last half century. It also analyzes the character and circumstances of the middle class, working class, and underclass, laying bare the profound, many-sided conflict between the gamers and the middle and working classes. It also examines the
Praise for Coming Together, Coming Apart "Interesting conversation is Israel's most ingratiating commodity, and this is an especially interesting one.

Praise for Coming Together, Coming Apart "Interesting conversation is Israel's most ingratiating commodity, and this is an especially interesting one. To read Coming Together, Coming Apart is to be engaged in an ongoing dialogue with one of Israel's most thoughtful observers--an American who made Israel his home, despite its imperfections and dangers. Gordis's conversational narrative is irresistible." --Alan dershowitz, author of The Case for Israel "Whether describing a walk through Jerusalem in snow, a hike in the desert, or a farewell family drive to the Gaza settlements, Gordis manages to capture the essential details that tell us the larger meaning of our Israeli lives. There is much irony in this book, and also anger, especially against those who unfairly judge Israel in its most desperate and noble times. Most of all, though, this book is the chronicle of a love story--of an immigrant family in Jerusalem falling in love with Israel and, through that love, discovering the strength to cope with life on the front lines of a jihadist war. As a fellow Jerusalemite, I feel a profound debt to Gordis for explaining what it means to raise a family in the middle of a terror zone, and the courage that average Israelis instinctively display in maintaining the pretense of normal life. Those of us who share his passion are fortunate to be so well represented by this book." --Yossi Klein Halevi, Foreign Correspondent, The New Republic
