Structures of American Social History

תקציר
The history of population is fundamental to the understanding of changes in society. Nowhere is this truer than in the United States, which throughout its history has experienced vast changes in population movement, distribution, and composition. In Structures of American Social History Walter Nugent grapples with the "facts" of population and develops a new perspective on American history.
Nugent demonstrates how population trends intertwine with social and economic history and with the values and beliefs of society. Historical patterns projected into the twenty-first century yield a somewhat startling conclusion: Nugent offers a view of the future that is far more sanguine than the views of those who see only doom and decline in "the graying of America."
