American political values of the 1980s are vividly defined in The American Ethos. Herbert McClosky and John Zaller provide a comprehensive display of dramatic survey findings—of Americans en masse and of leadership groups—and historical material to trace the evolution of public attitudes toward the defining elements of the American political tradition.

Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
