BeschreibungA world-renowned authority on religion and ethics in America, Martin Marty gives a judicious account of how our body politic has been torn between the imperative of one one nation undivided and the separate urgings of distinct identitiesracial, ethnic, religious, gendered, ideological, economicclaiming grievances. Issuing an urgent call for repair, Marty envisions steps we might take to cary America past this new turbulence.
PressestimmenHere, addressing the thorny issue of cultural diversity in American public life, Marty displays the clear thinking, elegant prose, and facility to cut to the heart of tough issues that are the hallmarks of his reputation. For anyone interested in public philosophy, multiculturalism, communitarianism, minority rights (all terms that Marty uses sparingly), this is a must-read...[Marty's] purpose here is to show the pitfalls of the easy answers of both totalists and tribalists, and to demonstrate the necessity of the hard work of self-reflection and engagement to find the correct distance. This inspiring work deserves the respect of both camps and may even win over converts from both.--Joanne R. Bauer "Ethics and International Affairs "
