Traces through a period of 170 years of American history how opposing factors of freedom, choice, and equality have interacted with responsibility, commitment, and respect, looking at the way in which segments of populations have influenced the cultural ethos of our times. Examines the development of individualism, which sprang to full expression in the days of the American Revolution, aligned with the ideals of equality, liberty, and human dignity. There is special attention paid to the rise of what the author calls therapeutic theology and the replacement of the older virtue of love by the newer virtue of communication. The author is an associate professor in the religious studies department of Mount Saint Mary's College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
