The Protestant Heritage, The Family, Government and Politics, American Values at the Crossroads.. These are but a few chapter headings in this provocative introduction to the basic American cultural values and how they influence American behaviour and institutions. In the first five chapters the authors show how our basic beliefs developed into a value system embraced by most Americans. The last seven chapters explore the impact of these values on American life.
