Summary
In this pathbreaking study that has earned the praise of scholars, family advocates, and policymakers, Richard T. Gill does more than illuminate the multiple causes and devastating effects of America's diminishing spirit of optimism. In order to reverse this disturbing trend, Gill urges Americans to reject short-term solutions, expand their time horizons, and, above all, give increasing care and attention to their children
