Abstract:

Muncie, Indiana, is known to sociologists as Middletown and, since the 1920s, has been the site of influential studies on the attitudes and beliefs of the American people. In this program, a concise documentary essay on Muncie is followed by a spirited discussion with three distinguished academic sociologists: Alan Wolfe, author of One Nation, After All; Bruce Geelhoed, Director of the Center for Middletown Studies; and sociologist Theodore Caplow. They join moderator Ben Wattenberg to explore the latest research on topical wedge issues and America's ongoing struggle to reconcile once-traditional values with such trends as the improved status of women, suburban sprawl, and a growing permissiveness in society.
