- Annotation Life in America today bears little resemblance to that of forty or fifty years ago. In some ways Americans are more prosperous and secure, but at the same time AIDS, crack, hopelessness, latchkey children, and surrogate mothers are all indicators that the pace of change has outstripped the ability of our institutions to adapt. America at Century's End allows us to see ourselves anew, comprehensively, and in the full flux of the immense changes in American life--from child-rearing to home buying, from workplace relations to international relations.
