"Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010"

Charles Murray

About the Program

Charles Murray, scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, argues that white America's class divide has grown to a level that has isolated the upper class and created a separation that may foment class warfare amongst an ever-growing lower class.   Utilizing census records from 1960 and 2000, Mr. Murray examines the growth of the class divide, the demise of a shared civic culture and the development of separate cultural understandings for the upper and lower classes.  Charles Murray speaks at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C.
