This book explores that nation of religions, focusing on how four recently arrived religious communities–Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, and Sikhs–are shaping and, in turn, shaped by American values.

A Nation of Wimps: The High Cost of Invasive Parenting

A Nation of Wimps: The High Cost of Invasive Parenting by Hara Estroff Marano
English | April 15, 2008 | ISBN: 0767924037 | 320 pages | PDF | 22 MB

Hara Marano, editor-at-large and the former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, has been watching a disturbing trend: kids are growing up to be wimps. They can’t make their own decisions, cope with anxiety, or handle difficult emotions without going off the deep end. Teens lack leadership skills. College students engage in deadly binge drinking. Graduates can’t even negotiate their own salaries without bringing mom or dad in for a consult. Why? Because hothouse parents raise teacup children—brittle and breakable, instead of strong and resilient. This crisis threatens to destroy the fabric of our society, to undermine both our democracy and economy. Without future leaders or daring innovators, where will we go? So what can be done?

A Nation of Immigrants?: A Brief Demographic History of Britain

A Nation of Immigrants?: A Brief Demographic History of Britain (CS58) by David Conway
Civitas: Institute for the Study of Civil Society | April 30, 2007 | English | ISBN: 1903386586 | 104 pages | PDF | 1 MB

Since 1997, Tony Blair’s Labour government has effectively abandoned restrictions on immigration into Britain that have been in place since 1905. It is now taken as a fact of life that there will be constant large-scale immigration into Britain. Defenders of the government’s position argue that Britain is a mongrel nation, resulting from hundreds of years of immigration, and that we are all either immigrants or descendants of immigrants. According to this view, there is nothing special about the present situation, and nothing to worry about.
