This is a valuable and fascinating book valuable because of the findings it presents, fascinating because of the way it presents them. The subject of Becoming Modern is the modernization process in six developing nations (Argentina, Chile, India, Israel, Nigeria, and Bangladesh). The method is to survey about a thousand men, aged 20-30, in each of these lands. The goal is to demonstrate that a modern man, identifiable by his attitudes toward different aspects of life, does indeed exist, and to find out what factors encourage the transformation from traditional to modern. -The New Leader
