Mr. Carlson talked about his book, The American Way: Family and Community in the Shaping of the American Identity, published by Intercollegiate Studies Institute. Mr. Carlson asserts that, more than any other factors, family and religion have provided the basis for America’s national identity. He contends that the 1964 Civil Rights Act helped to put an end to traditional family life. Mr. Carlson feels that strong measures are necessary if American culture is to regain its family and community-centered focus. Following prepared remarks, the author responded to questions from the audience. close
