Elwell argues that recent changes in the economy, the family, higher education, and the political system, as well as changes in cultural ideas and ideologies, are interrelated and rooted in massive changes in population size and industrial processes. By systematically relating the analysis of these sociocultural phenomena to the whole and to one another, this volume presents a framework that can serve to organize and integrate many diverse theories, insights, and empirical information into a comprehensive worldview.
