    schema:description ""The Culture of Immodesty in American Life and politcs" is a collection of thirteen essays from a broad range of scholars and independent authors, evaluating the prevalence of immodesty in various aspects of American life and culture.

Going beyond mere diagnosis of societal ills, "The Culture of Immodesty in American Life and Politics" provides a prescription for cultural impropriety: promoting a framework for the rejection of immodesty and greed in contemporary life."@en ;
