Belonging in America: Reading Between the Lines

Передня обкладинка
Univ of Wisconsin Press, 30 вер. 1990 р. - 285 стор.
Belonging in America gives voice to unspoken conventions and silent understandings and asks why our culture draws the lines it does--between home and work, family and friends, humans and animals. Throughout her fascinating book, Constance Perin shows us the systems of meaning through which contemporary American create social order and define their relationships.
