Book description

A groundbreaking examination of the growing inequality gap from the bestselling author of Bowling Alone: why fewer Americans today have the opportunity for upward mobility.

It’s the American dream: get a good education, work hard, buy a house and achieve prosperity and success. This is the America we believe in — a nation of opportunity, constrained only by ability and effort. But during the last 25 years we have seen a disturbing “opportunity gap” emerge.

Americans have always believed in equality of opportunity, the idea that all kids, regardless of their family background, should have a decent chance to improve their lot in life. Now, this central tenet of the American dream seems no longer true or at the least, much less true than it was.
