The Cultural Creatives
|Author:||Paul H. Ray; Sherry Ruth Anderson|
ARE YOU A CULTURAL CREATIVE?
Do you dislike all the emphasis in modern culture on success and "making it," on getting and spending, on wealth and luxury goods?
Do you care deeply about the destruction of the environment and would pay higher taxes or prices to clean it up and to stop global warming?
Are you unhappy with both the left and the right in politics and want to find a new way that does not simply steer a middle course?
In this landmark book, sociologist Paul H. Ray and psychologist Sherry Ruth Anderson draw upon thirteen years of survey research studies on more than 100,000 Americans. They reveal who the Cultural Creatives are and the fascinating story of their emergence over the last generation, using vivid examples and engaging personal stories to describe their distinctive values and lifestyles. The Cultural Creatives offers a more hopeful future and prepares us all for a transition to a new, saner, and wiser culture.
