What is the "American Dream"? This book's author argues that contrary to what many believe, it is not achieving the wealth necessary to enter the top one percent but rather becoming members of the great middle class by dint of hard work and self-discipline.


· Includes content related to all the themes of the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies and the Common Core requirements for primary documents and critical thinking exercises

· Focuses on the intersections of middle class society to current issues of interest and policy debates, including diversity, gender, taxation, race, minimum wage, unions, student loan interest rates, school closings, and labor issues

· Documents the perspectives of the major economists of each era on the middle class

About the Author:

Robert S. Rycroft, PhD, is professor of economics at the University of Mary Washington, Fredericksburg, VA.

Review:

"This is an excellent resource for high school, public, and academic libraries. Anyone doing research in the social sciences will find this detailed portrait of contemporary American society very useful." - Booklist, Starred Review

"Well written, thoughtfully organized, and timely, this set would be a good addition to most reference collections. It would be especially useful for community college libraries and those supporting a large proportion of first-generation college students, as the topics covered will be particularly relevant. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All libraries. All levels." - Choice

"The pieces are well written . . . VERDICT Of interest to high school and college students." - Library Journal
