Robert Putnam on “Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis”

The Program on Constitutional Government at Harvard University presents a lunch talk with Robert Putnam on his book, “Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis”

Robert Putnam is Malkin Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. His topic comes from his latest best seller Our Kids: The American Dream In Crisis, following upon Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community (2000) and Making Democracy Work: Civic Traditions in Modern Italy (1993), two of the most-cited works in social science in the last half-century. His book American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us (2011, co-authored with David Campbell) received the Woodrow Wilson award from the APSA as that year’s best book in political science. He is a member of the National Academy of Science, a Fellow of the British Academy, and past President of the APSA. He is a graduate of Swarthmore (1963) and received his doctorate from Yale in 1970.
